Women Over 50 Film Festival’s Best of the Fest (12A)

The Old Market, 11a Upper Market Street, Hove

Tuesday March 20, 7.30pm

Tickets £6

Ageing is one of the key themes of The Old Market’s Reigning Women season. Many of the experiences facing women that are intimately tied up with getting older are often concealed and ignored, never taking centre stage in explorations within mainstream arts. The Women Over 50 Film Festival (WOFFF) celebrates older women on screen and behind the camera with an annual short film festival and regular screenings and events in and around Brighton and Hove. In collaboration with WOFFF, The Old Market is screening a hand-picked selection of the best films that the 2017 WOFFF has to offer. Expect a wide variety of women represented in a cornucopia of different media. There’s documentary, fiction, animation and more. Every film WOFFF screens has a woman over 50 at the heart of the story on screen or a woman over 50 in one of the core creative roles (writer, producer or director). WOFFF’s grand aim is to play a key part in the creation of a film viewing, filmmaking and film education community centred around the lives, stories and experiences of older women.
