Women in Film and TV Germany is set to host an event titled “Between Escapism, Activism and Documentation – Filmmaking in Trembling Times” on 17th February 2024 from 10AM to 12:30PM at the Berlinale. WIFT Members of all chapters are welcome.

Looking at the world today, there seem to be new crises emerging daily – war, climate change, flight and displacement, and the resurgence of the far-right. All too often, women are the ones who suffer the most; they are killed, raped, and silenced. But women are also game changers, often fighting for a fairer, better, more sustainable world, be it as activists, politicians, or artists. They won’t be overlooked anymore. Within this context, this event wants to question what the role of film and filmmakers can be in these trembling times. WIFT Germany welcomes four incredible women, who will share how they handle crisis situations and how this shapes the films they make, via three short impulse lectures. Between the lectures, attendees will have time to network and get to know inspiring women in film & TV from all around the world. WIFT Germany is looking forward to engaging with our speakers and audience, and to fighting against division by standing together.

Interested members who wish to participate are kindly asked to send an e-mail to info@wiftg.de.
