Bulawayo: 1-2 December
It is with great
pleasure that Women Filmmakers of Zimbabwe presents the 9th edition
of the International Images Film Festival for Women (IIFF), the
only professional women's festival south of the Sahara. Running
under the theme Women of Decision, which investigates among other
things, the societal pressures women face when making decisions
for themselves, their families, and the community, IIFF will continue
to stand out as a festival where people are not only entertained
but are also educated and inspired.
IIFF received an overwhelming
response of more than 100 films of different genres from across
the globe. The selection was stiff but IIFF is proud to say more
and more women are coming out of their closets to tell their stories
and through their eyes. Screenings will be held at Ster Kinekor
- Eastgate, Alliance Francaise and the Zimbabwe German Society in
Harare where the premier television showcase, INPUT will take place.
The Bulawayo leg of the festival will be celebrated at the Stanley
Hall in Makokoba and finally for the first time ever, the Gwanda
community will get an opportunity to watch the films at the Edward
Ndlovu Memorial Library.
This year, IIFF incorporates
some exceptional local films and therefore sees it fitting to open
and close with local productions. The Ndichirimupenyu (While I Am
Still Alive) Awards will this year take place in collaboration with
UNIFEM during a special event on Gender Based Violence
In attendance will be
acclaimed filmmakers from Belgium, Britain, Poland, Belgium, Malawi,
Mozambique and Namibia taking part in different training workshops.
As always, it is necessary
for us to thank the people without whose help this festival would
not be possible. In particular, we would like to express our sincere
gratitude to SIDA, Culture Fund, UNIFEM and Afrykamera, the corporate
world for coming on board as well as friends, partners who have
always supported IIFF. WFOZ team, your support is appreciated. We
would also like to thank the audiences who love and support IIFF.
