Biggest women’s Film Festival is back in town!!
Mumbai women’s International Film Festival (MWIFF) is an 8-day film festival, organized by Oculus Creations to bring forth the women of the industry at an international level. Slated in the month of December from 6th to 13th 2014, it offers film buffs to enter in the cinematic world of films, entertainment, knowledge and fun.
The purpose of the film festival is to provide an international platform to the unknown, the unheard, and the hidden talent of film-making in a woman. MWIFF is not to portray women in front of the camera, but to showcase her talent behind the camera and give her the spotlight she always deserved! MWIFF also promotes friendship and co-operation among people of the world through the medium of films & documentaries and thus have a wide diverse cultural exchange.
Albeit film festivals have become a regular event in most countries and give consideration to the successful film makers, MWIFF intends to organize a festival which is for upcoming independent filmmakers and technicians. The festival connects the film buffs & movies goers with the film world, especially the enthusiast filmmaker & their associates so as to bring about greater understanding of the art of film making.
Filmmakers have a wide range of categories to choose from, which describes their talent as an auteur the best. The competitive category includes Short Films, Documentary Films, and Feature Films; the non- competitive category includes World Cinebusters, World Panorama and World Premiere.
The festival director Avinash Pawar said, “This is the first biggest Women’s International Film Festival in India through which we aim to unleash the talent of filmmakers from all over the world. We also have master class and seminars by Indian Film industry professionals to provide deep-rooted knowledge about cinema to the aspiring filmmakers. MWIFF will prove to be a stepping stone for filmmakers in converting their dreams into reality”.
The event, which claims to have something for those behind the camera and those in front of it, will see 6 days of film screenings, closing night networking parties, industry panels, post-screening discussions, celebrities, an award ceremony and a pink carpet.
The festival does not put down the curtains to the male filmmakers, thereby also giving them an opportunity to be a part of the festival. To get a detailed insight about the festival, visit www.mwiff.com mail the festival at [email protected] .
