Further information
Fd4w founder Ruth Torjussen began teaching confidence building, women-only
film directing courses in September 2009 with the aim of contributing to
the worldwide movement that will see a huge rise in the number of films
being directed by women. (Currently only 6% of film directors are women.
Source: BEV 2009). Such was the success of the courses that in just a
short time Filmdirecting4women has become a grassroots community of women
film directors with many more courses, monthly networking/screening events,
an ever-growing online members support network and now their own
international festival.

The inaugural FD4W International Film Festival will be a creative space
where women directors will be inspired and encouraged.
