Films Across Borders: Stories of Women

Films Across Borders: Stories of Women, a multi-cultural film series, showcases an eclectic selection of cinematic works by and about women. As the focus on gender-balanced perspectives and parity in representation has moved to the forefront of contemporary discussion, Stories of Women portrays vital and diverse female voices in film through dramatic features, documentaries and shorts.

Screenings, panels and audience Q&A will explore key issues around the female gaze, women in film, and the ways in which women, fighting for equality on screen and behind the camera, raise awareness about vital social issues, inspire action and pave the way for stories of other minority populations to be brought to the fore.
