The UK-based Women Over 50 Film Festival is an event celebrating the movie industry's lesser known talents, and is known for spotlighting a number of independent works by local writers, producers, directors, and actors.

Hosted at The Sallis Benney Theatre at the University of Brighton, this event aims to empower mature women within the film industry by recognizing their work both on camera and behind the scenes.

Responding to mainstream media's age-related stereotypes and rejection of mature women, University of Brighton's Women Over 50 Film Festival empowers its participants, and offers a number of award titles centered around producing, writing, and directing. The awards can only be won by film industry professionals who are female, and over 50 years of age -- making this event a unique opportunity to recognize the work of those who may often go overlooked in the entertainment industry.
