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.
The programme features new releases, preview screenings and international premieres divided into market and public screenings along with a digital library, which presents an extended selection of films, accessible on demand to WOMEX delegates. Learn more about the Programme Formats here.
For a broader community engagement during these extraordinary times, a series of films are available on-demand to all virtualWOMEX account holders. The films below are online for ten days after which a new selection will be live. Stay tuned...

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!!
