the LADIMA’S WOMEN
The Ladima Foundation has initiated a network of women-focused festivals and events in order to promote these events on a global scale, as well as to increase the capacity and skills base within the organisations. The Women’s Film Festival Curating and Mentoring Programme is a residency programme that works with the Festival Directors of female run and focused film festivals in order to upskill the teams and support the festivals.
Currently three African festivals are in the network with the IFFF Dortmund/Cologne recently added as a mentor festival.
The first residency programme took place in Rwanda in August 2019 with the Festival Directors of female run and focused film festivals with a focus on strategic planning and curation.
