About this year's theme
Women in Motion
This year we are curating a program that spotlights the contributions of women in film. From the pioneers that helped shine the spotlight on female filmmakers, to those that have continued to push the boundaries and advance the art of filmmaking today - we take our hats of to the fabulous women of cinema, both in front of the camera and behind.
