The World Of Women Film Festival is undoubtedly a unique way of showcasing talent from all across the world. When we refer to talent here, it is not restricted to yet another film festival celebrating the success of patriarchy and the power of men who seem to rule the world. This film festival is all about women and their contribution to films and television. Needless to say, this is a domain that had been essentially dominated by men for a long period of time but with people beginning to identify and understand the need for feminism, the world of films is no longer under the ruling of a man.
The WOW film festival celebrates that and more. It is about acknowledging the efforts and the hard work that women producers, writers, directors, cinematographers, and editors put in to make a film worth watching. The awards and the credits are not restricted to the Australian film industry alone but also include international films.
To extend its reach, this film festival presents itself as a platform for as well
as established talent to screen their work. This naturally gives them a wider reach and a stronger base to connect while showcasing their work of art.
The WOW is a brilliant attempt by the WIFT (Women In Film And Television) to improve on-screen as well as the off-screen status of women by supporting, upholding and promoting their roles in the industry, irrespective of their position.
The stories told here are all viewed from a woman’s perspective so that we can finally have a story to review from what the woman thinks about it. Women from various backgrounds and nationalities come together in this amazing film festival to reach out to a wider audience that sees life beyond gender, nationalities, and background. A film festival that discusses women doing all that they can to achieve their adventurous goals is quite inspiring all by itself.
