MWFF 2017 - Festival Launched!

Wow! What an amazing launch of our festival! A big thank you to all of you who made our opening night and Saturday sessions so special.

Our warmest thank yous go to our super volunteers (looking spiffy in their MWFF t-shirts!), panelists, filmmakers, Chuffed supporters, and sponsors without whom this event would not have happened. 

We've had some incredible feedback from this year's event and we can't wait to bring you the next one!

Opening Night  
The Cheaters (1929)

MWFF kicked off in style with a screening of the McDonagh sister's film, The Cheaters. The silent film was spectacularly scored by Zulya and the Children of the Underground and made for a truly magical evening.

Following the screening, the after party radiated an incredible energy and buzz as the drinks flowed. A big thanks to all who came and we hope you had a fabulous time! You can see all the pics in our gallery on our website.

Until next year...

Although we aren't back again until next year, we're still going to be working towards showcasing and celebrating the incredible women working in the Australian screen industry in the meantime. Plans are already underway for some mini-events throughout the year. We can't help ourselves!

Make sure you stay tuned and we'll see you soon!
