Wench Film Festival

10th – 20th March, 2023 | Mumbai

The Wench Film Festival (WFF) aims to reclaim the original meaning of the word wench, which means, “a young woman” as opposed to the derogatory connotation attached to it. It is India’s first film festival celebrating works by women, including women of colour; LGBTQ+; and non-binary individuals. The event features film screenings, discussions, and professional development opportunities for women and non-binary storytellers to present their work. The festival also has a separate category for movies by male filmmakers with a central female plot.

The current edition of the festival will feature a parallel section called Reprise, which will showcase select films across genres. The Festival will be held virtually from 10 till 20 March, 2023, and in-person between 17 and 19 March, 2023 in Mumbai.
