WALES ONE WORLD FILM FESTIVAL
Opens on Thursday 21 March
WOW Film Festival returns to Aberystwyth Arts Centre for it’s eighteenth year! Come and join the party and celebrate the wonders of world cinema. WOW’s rich mix of stories represents the very best filmmaking from all over the world. Expect films that will leave you awestruck at the diversity of human experience in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and beyond.
This year the festival has a ‘Global Rural’ theme that in part is a partnership with the Department of Geography & Earth Sciences GLOBAL-RURAL project. At it’s centre is a talk by Professor Michael Wood on the impact of the globalization on rural societies and the rise of ‘rural cosmopolitanism’. We also have a South American slant with a pinch of shamanism running through it and our usual F-rated focus which means that half our films are made by women.
An exciting addition for 2019 is “Abercon”, a day of animations and workshops (Saturday 23rd March). Organised in partnership with Mencap Ceredigion, “Abercon” is a great example of the ways that world cinema can enrich everyone’s lives here in rural west Wales.
