The International Women’s Film Festival (IWFF) which promotes women’s rights and gender equality, is a unique opportunity to strengthen awareness and mobilize Afghan and international public opinion for increased women’s rights. It also provides Afghan women’s cinematographic talents to interact with international counterparts especially for the younger generation of activists from the fragmented region surrounding Afghanistan which has few openings to the outside world. This enables women’s rights activists, human rights defenders and artists to exchange experiences on their social struggles for gender equality and mutual learning. The IWFF is therefore a means to support and encourage activist film and documentary-makers to continue their activities in this domain and challenge traditionalist and non-progressive/conservative/fundamentalist/patriarchic attitudes towards women.
