Surprising and ceiling-breaking gems made by female film makers

Women Make Film

Women have written, directed and produced films since the early days of cinema.

Still, they are rarely over-represented on lists and at award ceremonies. That’s why you can see the brand new monumental documentary series Women Make Film: A New Road Movie Through Cinema in September. We will also screen some 25 surprising and ceiling-breaking gems you should not miss, all of them made by female film makers.

In collaboration with Internationaal Filmfestival Assen.
