A documentary about silent film writer, director, and star, Nell Shipman.

The film reveals the forgotten legacy of Shipman and a generation of female silent film pioneers. The documentary includes rare footage of these artists, including minority filmmakers, Zora Neale Hurston and Miriam Wong. Geena Davis and female directors discuss gender-inequities Nell and her counterparts faced that perpetuate in today’s film industry.

#WOW2016 MAY 28 - June 12

Thank you! Our 2016 festival was our biggest and most ambitious festival yet.

You can find out what happened during the festival here: >>> 2016 WOW FESTIVAL BROCHURE

We had a very strong Film strand this year as we celebrated 120 years of film in Sussex.

Within our Words strand, we had author events, writing workshops and hands-on chances for people to make films, and write stories. As ever we had a fantastic time visiting schools in the run up to the festival. Families are always welcome to all events, and this year we had the highest number of entries to our Competitions.

Thank you to the thousands of people who attended events and exhibitions! We had a brilliant festival.
