HER Film Festival

Simavi and Cinetree are hosting the first online HER Film Festival about women, premiering in The Netherlands on October 29, 2020. HER Film Festival aims to make the lives of women and girls worldwide visible while engaging the public with stories about health, empowerment and human rights.

Simavi’s mission to work towards a healthy life for all is more relevant than ever in 2020: the year that marks our 95 years of working. Crises like COVID-19 and climate change often compromise the position of women and girls.

Films about powerful women

HER Film Festival headlines a variety of films, portraying women who take their lives in their own hands. The festival shows women standing up for their rights, for example in Mustang and the Kenyan love drama Rafiki. Films where women are empowered, like The Diary of a Teenage Girl and Sacred Water. And films where women stand up for each other, such as in Suffragette.

Where is the festival hosted?

HER Film Festival is hosted from October 29 until November 6, 2020 by Simavi and Cinetree, an online streaming platform for quality films. The festival is completely online, corona-proof and free of charge. Due to the distribution rights of the films, the films are only accessible from The Netherlands.
