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.
In 2020, for our first ever edition of Women X, moving to a fully digital platform brought with it more positives than we could have ever imagined. Not only were we able to create such a communicative and collaborative space full of amazing creatives from all around the world, but we were also able to make the first installment of Women X festival as inclusive and accessible as possible. We were able to welcome an incredible 180 people from across the globe to our festival! With 2021 we held our festival at our venue in the North East of England and virtually via the Shift72 player for our digital delegates to continue to be an accessible festival.
