IAWRT Asian Women’s Film Festival

5 Mar, 2019 - 7 Mar, 2019
Films can mean a lot of ideas, a way to observe and finally as a portrait,
which has a common denominator called…. life.
The 15th IAWRT Asian Women’s Film Festival will be held from 5th – 7th March 2019. IAWRT India organizes this unique Asian women’s film festival each year to mark the International Women’s Day. Launched in 2005, the IAWRT film festival has over the years positioned itself with a conscious effort to showcase narratives weaved by Asian women filmmakers and grown in strength and reputation, with participation from around the world.
Over the last 15 years, the festival has traveled to many Indian cities, and the curated package of films from the festival has been screened at other festivals across the world. The IAWRT film festival endeavors to showcase work by women filmmakers of Asian origin, from around the world.
