Women’s Day: 6 works by young female makers

    In honor of International Women’s Day, we present 6 works by young female filmmakers and artists to watch. All documentaries and interactive projects are available to stream in the IDFA online collection.

    Besides being up-and-coming makers, many of these talented young women are dear to the IDFA family. Teodora Ana Mihai, the filmmaker behind Waiting for August, has sat on the IDFA jury and participated in IDFAcademy Summer School. Asli Özarslan’s film Dil Leyla is the director’s second title to be selected for the IDFA Competition for Student Documentary. Theresa Traore Dahlberg’s Ouaga Girls saw its Dutch premiere in our Best of Fests program, setting the stage for Dahlberg’s latest film to compete in the IDFA Competition for Short Documentary. On the interactive side, Rahima Gambo’s multimedia piece Tatsuniya and Karina Popp’s stop motion game 10 Mississippi were both selected for the IDFA DocLab Competition for Digital Storytelling.

    There you have it: 6 promising female makers to watch. And 6 works to watch today, right here on our website.
