The trinidad+tobago film festival is partnering with UN Women and the Institute for Gender and Development Studies (IGDS), UWI to present The Power of Women in Film, on Friday 22 September, from 9am, at the Hyatt Regency Trinidad.
The day of panels and presentations will include speakers from across the region who 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 Power of Women in Film initiative is free, and individuals and organisations interested in the issues are invited to attend.
The Power of Women in Film will be followed by three days of feminist cinema, from 22 – 24 September, also at the Hyatt Regency Trinidad.
