Kino Shorts 41: Women In Short Film 3

Submissions by Women Filmmakers Wanted Now. Our third Women in Film this year on Wed 16th October at the Black Lion, and this one is going to focus on women filmmakers, writers and actors. So if you’r a female director that’s great, but not all, if your short film is writen by a woman or one where the central character of the film is also a woman, its elligible – women must play a central role in the writing and acting or directing the short film. Whichever it is we want to see you down at this event. We’ll be championing ‘Women in Film’ in the widest sense.
