The 2009 Women Make Wave Film Festival will address the theme “Women Move On: No Border, No Nation,” featuring films that portray women’s experiences in diaspora and the meaning of home and departure in that context. We will also present a special program honoring Julie Dash, one of the most preeminent African American women filmmaker of our time. The selection of this year also includes films that deal with the intricacies of break-ups. And as always, we will also showcase innovative works by women filmmakers from Taiwan and all over the world that break new cinematic ground and redefine women’s image on screen. Welcome to join us on an extraordinary journey, and we hope you will be as excited as we are during this year’s WMWFF!
