With Women X, our goal is to help break down the barriers that underrepresented voices face in the industry. Not only does our weekend-long festival showcase an amazing array of short films from women and non-binary filmmakers, it also brings together people from all across the globe to revel in their love of cinema and support each other in a safe and inclusive space. After the success of 2020, we’ll be bringing back a great variety of workshops, panels, networking opportunities and self-care spaces to supplement our official film selection and ensure that Women X’s culture remains intrinsically connected to community and the championing of one another.


This year we have introduced a student award and would be happy to grant graduates a 10% discount, all you need to do is get in touch!
