Women Through Film is a Pakistani-based initiative that aims to encourage and facilitate females to use self-expression and storytelling - through the art of filmmaking - in order to raise their voices; challenge, touch and inspire audiences; and create social change.

It is an initiative to celebrate the success stories, struggles, and achievements of inspiring women from all walks of life. We aim to create an army of vocal, confident, fearless, and economically independent female filmmakers who can tell stories about issues that affect them, through film and other interactive media.

We aim to enhance these skills and give our filmmakers a platform to display their work on an international forum. This festival is our platform.
