IAWRT Regional meet and film festival - South Africa

In 2016, IAWRT plans to launch the organisation’s first African Film Festival (AFF), an important step aimed at showcasing the work of female African filmmakers. The International board has decided that South Africa will host the 2016 Regional Conference in conjunction with the film festival, in late october or early November.

A workshop on the implementation of the Gender Mainstreaming Project (GMP) for the three pilot countries - South Africa, Tanzania and Kenya - will also be held on the sidelines of the Regional conference and AFF. The gathering is expected to be held in September.
