Women Over Fifty Film Festival - Watch Online


Director: Various
Runtime: 104 minutes
With subtitles and closed captions for d/Deaf and hard of hearing people.

In partnership with Modern Films, WOFFF virtual Best of the Fest is packed with award-winning films of witches, warriors and women who roar! What’s more, you can support WOFFF and your local independent cinema (us!) with your ticket-buying power too.

Women Over Fifty Film Festival (WOFFF) showcases international films by and about older women. Now in its 7th year, WOFFF creates a film community centred around older women and inspires younger people to re-think ageing and see creative potential in an often-invisible demographic.

The virtual ticket includes a q&a with Felicity Beckett and filmmakers Jessie Leong, Julie Middleton, Nicola Cross, Sara Jordan, Lisa Harmer, Natacha Horn, Ailis Logan, Kathleen Strouse and Paul Gatto.
