International Women's Film Festival Dortmund | Cologne
The new festival for the Rhine & Ruhr

With the recent merger of femme totale and Feminale – the two famous film festivals originally set up in Cologne and Dortmund in the 1980s – one of the most significant women's film festivals in the world has now come into being: the International Women's Film Festival Dortmund | Cologne. Unique in Germany, the IWFF provides a perfect platform for the presentation of the latest film developments and trends as they relate to women working in all areas of film production. Not just women film directors but women cinematographers, film-music composers and other women film-makers are given an unrivalled opportunity to showcase their latest work.

Based in the Rhine & Ruhr area, one of the world's largest metropolitan regions, the festival is open to all genres and styles. It takes place once a year, with the location alternating between the two cities Cologne and Dortmund. In addition, the International Women's Film Festival Dortmund¦Cologne sees itself as a forum for networking activities, sharing experience and training opportunities.

The next festival takes place from 23 - 27 April in Cologne. For more information and entry forms see:
