Film Programme

The WOMEX Film presents a curated selection of documentaries that portray music, movements and histories from across the world.

The programme is an opportunity for filmmakers, artists, producers and distributors to reach new markets along with exploring additional distribution and production channels. The section also creates an immersive experience for bookers, curators, label managers and publishers among others to discover new musicians, projects and reflect on alternative programming opportunities. Each year WOMEX facilitates this unique platform strengthening the conversation between the global music and film community.

The programme features new releases, preview screenings and international premieres divided into market and public screenings along with a digital library. More about our programme formats here.
