Following the great success of the previous years, Women in Film and Television Greece (WIFT GR) and the Greek Film Archive present the 5th “50/50 EQUALITY IN CINEMA” WIFT GR FILM FESTIVAL, which is organised this year with the collaboration of the Thessaloniki International Film Festival, under the auspices and with the support of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sport, and under the auspices of the Hellenic General Secretariat for Demography and Family Policy and Gender Equality. It takes place between 24 and 28 November 2021, on the occasion of the UN International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women (25/11). The Festival offers a tribute to the great documentarist Kim Longinotto, with a series of film screenings and a masterclass (27/11, 17:00), as well as the round table “No, You Are Not Wrong!” (26/11, 20:00), with the participation of Sofia Bekatorou and feminist organisations. Twenty films will be screened in all, short and full-length, documentary and fiction.
As always, all screenings and events of the Festival will be free of charge. Due to the pandemic, the Festival will be held online, at the screening platform of the Greek Film Archive online.tainiothiki.gr, with the exception of the opening night (24/11, at 19:00), which will take place in the great hall of the Greek Film Archive. Online screenings begin on Thursday morning (25/11, at 10:00).
