Women use multiple strategies to claim democratic spaces while being painfully aware of the many ways in which they are made invisible by majoritarian claims. The festival brings together women artists working in films and photographs to both document and intervene in these processes. The festival includes animation, short fiction, documentary and feature films as well as a section on Her Upside Down Gaze – the myriad ways in which women filmmakers are re-imagining the craft of filmmaking; and a special focus on films from the UAE.
