Preview Filmfestival Women’s Worlds 2019
From 20 to 27 of November the film festival Women’s Worlds will again take place, although for the last time in Tuebingen! As from 2020 on it will move to Berlin, where the National Offices of TERRE DES FEMMES are located.
The fare-well performance of the TERRE DES FEMMES film festival promises exciting and endearing films, confrontations with thrilling themes, as well as fascinating guests who accompany the feature and documentary films and participate in a round table conversation
Two themes have been chosen as this year’s topic issues,
which have gotten more and more into the focus of the work of
TERRE DES FEMMES: Religious Fundamentalisms, which shows, how
these in different religions undermine the Human Rights of Women.
As well as Prostitution - under force and out of poverty, an issue
that is also at the core of this year’s TERRE DES FEMMES
flag action for the International Day „NO to violence against
women“ on 25 of November.
As part of the campaign for Girl’s Rights it will highlight a.o. the „Loverboy Method“, which lures away young girls from the schoolyards into prostitution.
Also this year Women’s Worlds offers school screenings around the time of the festival in November for the younger audience. The films may deepen contents from the curriculum and complement the regular subject matters or serve as an introduction to new themes and raise awareness about Women’s Rights. After the screenings the students have the opportunity to have an exchange with filmmakers or experts about the films and the topic issues.
