Teaming up with the WOW Foundation on Sunday 3rd March; and the INDIs on Saturday 9th March, expect an explosion of creativity and storytelling for 16-25 year olds, taking a fresh and inspiring look at what it means to be a young woman today.

The closing event on Saturday 9th March will feature two screenings at Stockroom Cinema, in partnership with LIFF and The Unit:
