Women Over 50 Film Festival 2024

The deadline is Tuesday 25 June 2024

Women Over 50 Film Festival (WOFFF) is open for submissions. Now in its 10th year this festival celebrates and champions older women in all their diversity on screen and behind the camera.

Women Over 50 Film Festival (WOFFF) is an inclusive festival which celebrates and champions older women in all their diversity on screen and behind the camera. WOFFF returns for its 10th annual short film online for 4 weeks in September and in person for one day on 21st September 2024.

Each film screened at WOFFF has to follow this one simple rule – it must have a woman over 50 at its centre or a woman over 50 in the core creative team (writer, producer or director).

Each short script entered in WOFFF must have a woman over 50 at its centre or a woman over 50 as the writer.

Prizes are awarded from professionals in the industry, as well as through an Audience Choice vote.

Since 2020, WOFFF has been an in-person and an online festival.

2023 saw films submitted more than 25 countries, including Trinidad and Tobago, South Africa, US, England and Scotland. Last year our first Gaelic film screened at WOFFF - Beatha Fodha (Life Below).

WOFFF films are as varied as the filmmakers who make them. The WOFFF23 programme boasted tales of love, work, family, jealousy, blind artists, the menopause and a murderous Scottish fruit farmer.

WOFFF awards prizes for:
Best Animation
Best Experimental
Best Drama
Best Documentary
Best Short Script
Best Student Film
Audience Choice

All short films selected for screening at WOFFF are eligible for competition. Winning films are invited to be part of the WOFFF Best of the Fest UK Tour in 2024.
