WOCMES Seville 2018 will screen a selection of award-winning films from the most representative festivals in the Middle East and North Africa.
This sampling of feature films, documentaries and short films about contemporary topics aims to highlight the situation of women and their different socio-cultural contexts, portraying their stories. Special attention is paid to the work of female directors from various countries, including renowned filmmakers who have earned industry recognition as well as upcoming promises.
The titles have been chosen by a committee of experts and concern topics and material that will be discussed at the Congress in panels and other analysis sessions.
Thanks to the generous cooperation of distributors, directors and producers, this film event’s final programme will encompass a wide range of representative audiovisual work across various fields of interest.
The films will be shown in the main building of the University of Seville, coinciding with the Congress session times, as well as in the auditorium of the Hassan II Pavilion, headquarters of the Thee Cultures of the Mediterranean Foundation (organisers of WOCMES Seville 2018), in afternoons and evenings.
