On International Women’s Day, we at VSAFF also celebrate the successes of women who have overcome prejudices, like the female film-makers whose films we are showing, and we acknowledge the women who continue to work towards gaining recognition for equality, justice and self-empowerment in our societies.

Come and see powerful female-driven stories coming from Africa in our 2016 headlining films: The Shore Break, Difret, and Dis ek, Anna. All VSAFF films screen April 8-10, 2016 at the Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, SFU Woodward’s.
