With the merger of femme totale and Feminale – the two famous film festivals originally set up in Cologne and Dortmund in the 1980s – one of the most significant women's film festivals in the world came into being: the International Women's Film Festival Dortmund | Cologne. Unique in Germany, the IWFF provides a perfect platform for the presentation of the latest film developments and trends as they relate to women working in all areas of film production. Not just women film directors but women cinematographers, film-music composers and other women film-makers are given an unrivalled opportunity to showcase their latest work.
Based in the Rhine & Ruhr area, one of the world's largest metropolitan regions, the festival is open to all genres and styles. It takes place once a year, with the location alternating between the two cities Cologne and Dortmund. In addition, the International Women's Film Festival Dortmund¦Cologne sees itself as a forum for networking activities, sharing experience and training opportunities.
Dortmund Camera Award- This special award is the only one of its kind in Germany and comes with € 5,000, its aim being – in a branch where women are still extremely underrepresented – to motivate young camerawomen in the job of their choice.
International Feature Film Competiton- The international award for women directors comes with € 25.000 Kindly donated by the utility company of RWE Westfalen-Weser-Ems AG, this prestigious award is being presented in Dortmund for the second time.
femme totale’s presentation of the work of famous directors and yet unknown filmmakers is an entertaining mixture that contains popular as well as ambitious political cinema. The festival also offers workshops and talks, which enables controverse discussions between the artists and the audience. The extensive programme of background events with specials and highlights creates the well-known atmosphere.
