Gender Advocay

The NDIVA WOMEN’S FILM FESTIVAL (NWFF) is aware of the gender parity issues in the film industry especially in Africa and her diaspora. African women filmmakers and women filmmakers of African descent are still highly unrepresented in the film industry and have challenges in accessing funds and other job opportunities in the film business. Because there are not many women writing and directing there are still issues with stereotypical representations of women in film narratives. The festival will have gender advocacy as part of its core business and will create the platforms to address the gender gap in the film industry for these women filmmakers who are already in the minority.
