The Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival (TTFF) has partnered with the United Nations Women and the Institute for Gender and Development Studies (IGDS) at the University of the West Indies (The UWI) to present “The Power of Women in Film” on September 22 at the Hyatt Regency, Port-of-Spain.
The event starts at 9 am and admission is free. The TTFF said “individuals and organisations who are interested in the issues are invited to attend.”
The day of panels and presentations will include speakers from across the region who will explore depictions of women and girls, and how film can be used to address issues of violence against women, objectification, gender inequality and female empowerment. Short films will be incorporated into the programme to help illustrate some of the issues being discussed.
The event will be followed by three days of feminist cinema, from September 22 to 24, at the same venue.
