Women of the lens film festival

2020 programme

Empowering through knowledge and celebration

For the first time our annual Festival was delivered online. Its success is such that it’s an element we’re gonna keep. 2020 brought unprecedented challenges to the industry across the board – without exception, and as a result many found alternative means to supplement their products with great results. What is it that ‘they‘ say about necessity and invention?!

As per usual, the calibre of productions submitted were incredible. They further cemented the importance of our platform as a means to showcase work that is overlooked. We can’t thank the filmmakers enough for submitting their work and we look forward to another programme later in 2021.
