Women Movement Building: Film Dialogue Series - Zimbabwe

Women Movement Building: Film Dialogue Series. A Zimbabwe Women's Resource Centre and Network and Women Filmmakers of Zimbabwe partnership.
International Images Film Festival (IIFF) screenings have found a new platform. Screenings held under the banner Women Movement Building: Film Dialogue Series started on the 29th of November 2015 at the Zimbabwe Women's Resource Centre and Network (ZWRCN). Harare, Zimbabwe.
The series was launched by a screening of Women Filmmakers of Zimbabwe (WFOZ) production Peretera Maneta. The successful launch was followed up by a screening of IIFF 2015 Best Short Film Damaru during the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence. 
Screenings are always followed by discussions on the different struggles women and girls in Zimbabwe are facing. The dialogue is not focused on the problems, but on possible solutions. 
Sessions are always accompanied by performances ranging from drumming to poetry. This has been done because the main purpose of these sessions is to amplify the voices of women using different artistic expressions. The Film Dialogue Series is the result of partnership between ZWRCN and WFOZ.

A screening and discussion of the short film Korji will be held on Monday, 29 February 2016 at the ZWRCN:
