Dear film aficionados and festival audience.
Half the sky belongs to women. Women live half of their lives on this earth, experience half the stories told. It’s about time that cinema, too, reflects this and gives women the room that they deserve: their lives, love, work, their conflicts, their desires and their adventures.
The women’s film festival ‘FrauenFilmTage’ has been doing just that – stubbornly, resolutely – for the past 12 years. Far away or in our vicinity – here we get to see the great diversity of life. We can look forward to this year’s theme ‘Women fight for their rights’, which will take us to Colombia, Ethiopia and many other countries. It will remind us of how much unites us. And what it is that is worth fighting for.
