The 15th annual Film Festival for Women’s Rights starts today and will run through April 8 in the country of Iceland. It is an event that celebrates women filmmakers from around the globe and provides opportunities to learn about new films, connect with like-minded friends, enjoy short film screenings and participate in panels on topics such as race, gender identity, sexual orientation and more. Expertly curated by filmmaker Michelle Latimer Anderson of Arclight Films – a production company dedicated to fostering meaningful relationships between female filmmakers – this year’s lineup promises to be one you won’t want to miss.
The “documentary film competition” is a documentary film festival that has been on for over 15 years. The festival is sponsored by the Women’s Film Festival, and it showcases films from all around the world.
These are three films you shouldn’t miss at the 15th Film Festival for Women’s Rights, which will take place at the CGV Arthouse Apgujeong in Seoul from December 8th to 12th 2021.
