Film Festival for Women's Rights (FIWOM), sponsored by Korea Women's Hot Line, started in 2006 to show the reality and gravity of violence against women happening everyday and to spread support for the survival and healing of the victims.
Audiences’ appetite for various content about women’s human rights is steadily growing. Films showing the changes of women’s images over the years, films pointing preconceived notions about domestic violence, stories about women’s aging, labor and body, etc are what the audiences of the present want.
However, it is not easy to set up meetings to discuss women’s human rights and violence against women within communites of regional areas. The Film Festival For Women’s Rights, which has been mainly based in Seoul, broadens its range by running community screenings in province areas, in order to prepare forums for non-capital region residents to look into a variety of issues relevant to women’s human rights.
