Women's festival


InKo Centre, Chennai in association with the Women`s International Film Festival, Seoul, the National Film Development Corporation (NFDC) India, the National Film Archives India (NFAI), the Directorate of Film Festivals of India (DFFI) and Sathyam Cinemas will present the 1st Women`s Film Festival in Chennai (WFF) from 1- 8 March, 2008.

In its first year, the Women`s Film Festival will focus on a strong Korean and Indian section of feature films by women directors, as well as a section on World Cinema with films from Germany, France, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Italy, Mexico, Iran, Canada, USA, Austria, Norway and Burkina Faso. With variety and range, this Festival promises a rich haul of films. Opening with Chitra Palekar`s Maati Maay we have a total of 84 films over 7 days across 4 screens - three at Sathyam Cinemas and one at the South India Film Chamber. We hope that this Festival focusing on Women`s Films and the discussions that follow thereafter will become an annual event, an ongoing conversation that will serve as a meaningful value addition for scholars, researchers, critics, film practitioners and viewers.
