Celebrate March 8 with us and join us for 47 hours of short films from around the world!
On International Women’s Day, we will paint the world through the female gaze with this empowering collection of content created by and centered on women and non-binary folk around the globe. Join us on March 8th to travel across continents and through time zones to savor these stories celebrating our wisdom, perspectives and experience.
The curated short films will be screened here on the WIFTI homepage on March 8 starting on 00:00am in the Pacific (UTC +12) and end on 11:59pm on the other side of the globe (UTC -11), which amounts to a 47h-long International Women’s Day!
