WIFT: FILMS THAT BREAK WITH NORMS
Women in Film and Television (WIFT) is an international network that strives for equality in the film and television industries. WIFT presents a conversation with directors Sosi Chamoun and Julia Thelin on their norm-breaking short films. Chamoun’s Princess Boy and Thelin’s Push It were screened at last year’s festival, and Thelin’s Tweener is a part of this year’s national competition. They will discuss how they work with child actors, norms, gender roles and casting, as well as non-stereotypical images. Participants: Julia Thelin (director) and Sosi Chamoun (director). Moderator: Valentina Chamorro Westergårdh (filmmaker and WIFT chairperson).
