Women Over 50 Film Festival celebrates the work of older women in front of and behind the camera.

From 14 - 17 September we'll be bringing you the third Women Over 50 Film Festival packed with short drama, documentary, animation and experimental films by or about women over 50, as well as hosting talks, filmmaker Q&As, panel events, workshops and exhibitions.

Our festival is open to all - no matter your age, gender, sexuality, race or religion - you're welcome at WOFFF as a filmmaker or a festival audience member.

Our 2017 festival venues are the Sallis Benney Theatre and Picturehouse Duke of York's - two great, wheelchair-accessible Brighton locations right in the heart of the city.

We're launching the festival with a red carpet event at Picturehouse Duke of York's. So put on your best Dancing Queen shoes and join us for a Super Trouper evening with WOFFF and Mamma Mia!

Picturehouse Duke of York's is offering half-price Mamma Mia! tickets to anyone who buys one full-price WOFFF 2017 screening ticket. This offer is available only by collection in person at the Picturehouse Duke of York's, Preston Circus, Brighton BN1 4NA.

If you buy a ticket for a WOFFF screening here on EventBrite, you can then head over to the Picturehouse Duke of York's at Preston Circus with your Eventbrite Unique Reference Number and you'll be able to book your half-price Mamma Mia! ticket.
