Hello, hello, hello. I am here to tell you three very important Her International Film Festival-related bits as we move into October.

First, I would like to remind you that we are now accepting blog submissions. It is a great way to get involved in the festival, and hone your writing skills. Is anything you want to write about a film, a director, a writer? We want to read it, and our audience does too! “Short and sweet” is the name of the game. If this is something that you might be interested in, you can find more details here.

The second thing is another writing opportunity. HERIFF have collaborated with Sonder to provide a platform for those who are interested in reviewing the selected films for this year’s festival. Find more information on how you can get involved here.

And last, but most definitely not least: it is also just under four weeks – that’s right, under! four! weeks! – until Her International Film Festival 2021 kicks off. The programme is being finalised at this very moment. We are excited, and we hope that you are too. The festival will run from the 25th to the 31st of October, and will offer a mix of in-person and online screenings and workshops.

Next week, I’ll be taking a look at some of the films that have been selected, so stay tuned!
