women making news in a world riven with conflict and dictatorial regimes
The IAWRT board has set aside funding for the screening of Velvet Revolution
and is accepting chapter and,later, individual member proposals for screening of our film about women making news, despite adversity.
Such activities must be non-commercial and may include workshops or panel discussions about the gender, media freedom and safety issues raised in this collaborative film.
Since its completion in February 2017 Velvet Revolution has been screened at the IAWRT Asian Women’s Film Festival in India, a paralel session at the 2016 CSW in New York, the IAWRT Nepal Women’s Film Festival, World Press Freedom Day events in London and New Delhi and at Amnesty International’s International Secretariat in London..
