The Dortmund|Cologne International Women's Film Festival sees itself not just as a showcase for the presentation of films but also as a forum for the film business as a whole, for networking opportunities and for expert dialogue. Which is why seminars and workshops with experienced female directors, scriptwriters and cinematographers have been an integral component of the festival programme for many years.

The range of services on offer is aimed both at women who are already professionally established and at those who are still trying to get their bearings. Inspiration from internationally successful experts, specialist knowledge at first hand, access to a network of women active in the film business and the chance to swap ideas with colleagues in a similar situation … these are central objectives at all the festival seminars and workshops.

This year's workshops will be conducted in German language. Further information on the single seminars is available on the German website. If you are interested in the acitivities without knowing German, please feel free to contact us via weiterbildung [ a t ] frauenfilmfestival.eu.
