In partnership with One World Media, we are hosting an online screening of select documentary shorts directed by talented emerging filmmakers.

From a group of women in North-Eastern Senegal using renewable energy to fight desertification, to a female shepherd in Morocco connecting with her land, these shorts explore a fascinating range of experiences of women across Africa - reversing traditional roles, fighting stigma, reflecting on agency, and the complexities of migration.

Please note: The programme of shorts will be available to view from 5pm on Tuesday 22 September until Thursday 24 September.

This will be followed by a Live Q&A with the filmmakers at 5pm on Thursday 24 September, so make sure to watch the films in advance and join the live discussion!
