At a time when concepts of truth and democracy are being stretched beyond recognition, the tide of political upheavals, environmental threats and isolationism can feel overwhelming. Our 2018 programme offers an antidote to despair and powerlessness. With more than 40 films on offer, 60% of which have been directed by women, this year’s festival celebrates our common humanity and our ability – individual and collective – to bring about a kinder, fairer, more sustainable world.

We believe in the transformative power of film – and so do our partners, volunteers, audiences and the filmmakers whose work we champion. Thanks to their trust and support, we are honoured to be sharing the stories of individuals and communities whose very resilience, tenacity and hope are radical acts of defiance. These include a Micronesian nation’s president’s urgent calls for climate action Anote's Ark, a young female Somali refugee’s historic journey to the US House of Representatives Time for Ilhan, the unwavering strength of Spanish citizens demanding their country confront the brutal crimes of Franco’s dictatorship The Silence of Others and the Palestinian women whose grassroots organising was the unsung, beating heart of the first Intifada Naila and the Uprising.

The films we screen and the conversations we foster do more than open eyes and minds: they are a direct invitation to reshape our world for the better – right here, right now.

Take a seat. Take a stand.
