This September marks the return of WomenX, the North East short film festival celebrating the creative work of women and non-binary people in the world of moving image. These directors, writers and producers will share their work in a programme of diverse and original pieces, considering both fiction and reality.

Organisers have strived to make the festival as accessible as possible, with attendees able to take part both in person at Darlington Hippodrome and online via Leeds Film Player.

Covering comedy, off-beat romance, animation, horror and other experimental genres, this festival of over 40 short films will showcase the wide range of storytelling techniques used by the brilliant women and non-binary film makers. Particular focus is dedicated to films created by women in the North East too, with a whole screening curated by award winning Darlington filmmaker (and the festival’s director) Caris Rianne.

WomenX not only gives audiences the chance to watch exciting films, it will also include two industry talks and workshops intended to aid people in developing their creative career pathways, and there’s the opportunity to be part of an interactive networking session, awards ceremony, and film quizzes too.

WomenX Film Festival takes place online and at Darlington Hippodrome from Friday 2nd-Sunday 4th September.
