Supporting Women Filmmakers

All films in this section carry the ‘F-Rating’. Currently expanding across the UK, this rating highlights films made by women, helping to redress an imbalance in the film industry. If a film has a female director or writer, it is awarded the F-Rating stamp of approval. If both apply, and also stars significant women in their own right, it is awarded the Triple F-Rating. Look out for other F-Rated films throughout the rest of the Film Festival programme.
