WOMEX Film presents documentaries that portray music, movements and histories from across the world.
WOMEX Film provides an opportunity for filmmakers, artists, producers and distributors to reach new markets and audiences. The programme 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.
Submissions for the WOMEX 20 Film Programme will open mid-January 2020.
We continue the Films on Demand section, where 15 films from the 2019 Film Programme are available on-demand. Delegates have exclusive online access to 2-3 films each month using their virtualWOMEX account. See the Films on Demand section below to find out more about this month’s selection.

WOMEX is a great platform not only for music but for some in-depth political, social and cultural explorations. If you navigate it well, it can be the place to see some very refreshing music acts, movies and meet people from all paths of life.
To present Indus Blues at a music expo such as WOMEX rather than a film festival was not only an unique experience but one that was extremely inspiring and motivating. The quality of the audience at the screening was incredible, and it was very helpful to get feedback and support from the music industry for the film.
When music is at the heart of your film, WOMEX is your home, your fan and the most extraordinary friend, completely embracing the experience of the telling of a story and being the story.
As filmmakers and fans of music from around the world, it's an honour to have Wahenga (The Ancestors) selected to play at WOMEX 19. We hope this will create exposure for Tanzanian zilipendwa music and the urgent need to keep musical heritage alive. We would also love if the film playing at WOMEX helped the band to get the chance to finally release an album of their music as well as to get some opportunities to perform.
Four day’s connecting music, movies and people from every little corner of this beautiful planet. WOMEX is one amazing festival!!
