The Women’s Canvas – A Festival of Films (16th–19th December) is based in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, India. Run by women for women, with local and international filmmakers, they ‘reward the accomplishments of like-minded filmmakers who aim to create interesting and boundary-pushing content’.
Women in any aspect of film production are included with (as I estimate) over 35 awards! And exhibitors are invited ‘to participate in a variety of programs, Q&A sessions and a series of panel discussions, Press Conferences. masterclasses where filmmakers have the opportunity to discuss their work and careers with a new generation of content creators.’
I was fortunate enough to have Villanelle for Elizabeth not Ophelia included in this festival and look forward to discovering more about it in the coming days.
