Melbourne Women in Film Festival
Established in early 2017, the Melbourne Women in Film Festival is a not-for-profit festival aimed at celebrating and supporting the work of women and gender diverse filmmakers and creatives – from directors, writers and producers to cinematographers, sound designers and editors. This year’s MWFF theme ‘More Than…’ explored the future of women’s screen practice and storytelling. It considered future spaces for women working in screen with a focus on alternative storytelling approaches. The eight-day festival comprised of online screenings as well as live events, featuring films, shorts and web series from diverse women filmmakers from across Australia, Aotearoa New Zealand and Moana Oceania, as well as live-streamed panels, discussions and workshops. MWFF provides a platform for filmmakers from culturally diverse backgrounds, filmmakers with disability, and LGBTQIA+ filmmakers.
