IFI & WFT: BRIEF ENCOUNTERS WITH WOMEN 2021

IFI & WFT Ireland present Brief Encounters with Women 2021.

Opening a window on work by a new wave of women filmmakers, IFI and Women in Film and TV Ireland present this inspiring programme of short films selected from a significant volume of work submitted by WFT members. While these films couldn’t differ more 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 female creatives.

IFI is pleased to provide a space to enjoy and critically engage with this work. WFT Ireland is a voluntary, members-led organisation run by film and TV professionals, representing the creative, business, educational and technical divisions of the Irish audio-visual sector.

The screenings will be followed by awards selected by a WFT jury for Best Film, Best Runner-Up and Best Cinematography.

WFT Ireland acknowledges the generous support of the BAI.
