Submissions open for the Women Over 50 Film Festival

Posted Monday 15 Feb 2021

There's a new award on offer in WOFFF, which returns for its 7th annual festival on 25 - 26 September, 2021.

The new award is thanks to a partnership with TENA (yes, of the incontinence pads and underwear) which is sponsoring the new category for films on the theme 'our bodies change, but why should we?'

You have until 8 June 2021 to get your submissions in (although the late deadline is 21 July). Remember, there's this one simple rule for entry - your film must have a woman over 50 at its centre or a woman over 50 in the core creative team (writer, producer or director).
