Diana Means interviews Executive Director of Women Voices Now Heidi Basch-Harod about their documentary film festival that takes place online March 1st - March 31st.
ABOUT THE WOMEN’S VOICES NOW (WVN) FILM FESTIVAL
The Women’s Voices Now Film Festival is an international women’s rights documentary film festival supporting emerging women filmmakers. Since 2011, we have received 1070+ film submissions from 85+ countries and awarded $118k in cash prizes to filmmakers.
THIS YEAR’S THEME: Holding Ground Under Siege
Around the world we see backlash against the progress made in the global women's rights movement. Women face new challenges precisely because of the advances made toward realizing their full human rights. Instead of pushing forward, is now a time to maintain our gains? Looking through the lenses of our filmmakers: Where should we focus our efforts in the coming years?
