Opening a window on work by a new wave of women filmmakers, the IFI and Women in Film and TV Ireland once again present this inspiring programme of short films selected from a significant volume of work submitted by WFT members. While these films couldn’t be more different in style, scope, genre and theme, they all have one thing in common: they are directed and created by the Irish film industry’s most talented up-and-coming women creatives.
