Films over 55 minutes duration can be entered in the non-competition category.
WOW is a unique showcase of films by women, providing a perspective of the world through women’s eyes. WOW promotes and awards the talent of women filmmakers in many roles.
Awards will be presented for Best Films in various categories, plus Best Director, Writer, Cinematographer, Editor and Music Composition.
Entries can be any genre, with a variety of production values from emerging and established filmmakers from different backgrounds and nationalities.
WOW welcomes films from every sector of the female filmmaking community, particularly from Australian indigenous filmmakers and other underrepresented groups.
WOW 2015 aims to be a festival of discovery, celebration, debate, networking and an inspiration for new work. While WOW 2015 will especially showcase films by Australian women, it will also screen international films.
