This festival celebrates confidence in the possibilities of cinema as a means of expression for both men and women. The carefully assembled program includes screenings of highly individual works by female moviemakers from around the world, lectures and talks, and audience interaction. Two acclaimed masterpieces from Canada will be featured this year.

Kari Skogland's The Stone Angel is a screen adaptation of Margaret Laurence's novel of the same name. It tells the powerful story of Hagar, a woman sensing that the end is near and reflecting on the road she has travelled since her younger days. Sarah Polley's Away From Her is a profound yet calm portrayal of an elderly couple's thoughts as the wife is overcome by Alzheimer's disease. Both films showcase brilliant work by young directors paired with famous actresses.
