Welcome to The Women's Bioscope - International Rolling Film Festival, a celebration of cinematic excellence that spotlights the creative contributions of women in the world of filmmaking. Our festival is a Quarterly Film Screening & Award Event that provides a platform for both women and men to showcase their talents and share their unique stories with a global audience.

The Women's Bioscope is more than just a film festival, it's a movement to amplify the voices of women in the film industry. We believe in the power of storytelling to inspire, educate, and create positive change. By providing a space for filmmakers of all genders, we aim to foster collaboration and diversity within the industry.
