Women Over 50 Film Festival

Relaxed Screening: Best of WOFFF

SATURDAY 28 SEPTEMBER, 12.00, ST JOHN'S CHURCH

Women Over 50 Film Festival (WOFFF) present a dazzling display of documentary, comedy, animation, drama and experimental short film from an older generation of women storytellers.

WOFFF champions the work of older women in front of and behind the camera. Striving to create a film community to combat both structural visibility and loneliness, each of their curated shorts feature a woman over 50 at its heart either on screen, or as writer, producer or director.

This event is dementia-friendly which means the lights are up, chatting is encouraged, and people can come and go as they please. You can come along for one or two films or stay for them all.

All shorts presented in this selection will have on screen English subtitles for the Hard of Hearing.

This selection of shorts have guidance classifications of U and 15. Some of the short films are not suitable for viewers under the age of 15.
