Film Programme

WOMEX Film presents 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.

As part of a broader community engagement throughout the year and creating spaces of learning, sharing and inspiration, WOMEX Film presents an extended selection of music-based documentaries. The first of this exclusive content is available to stream online from 27 - 31 January to all WOMEX 20 digital participants and virtualWOMEX account holders. Login in to your virtualWOMEX account to access the films listed below. A new selection of films will be released in the upcoming months. Stay tuned…
