Film Programme

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 Market Screenings are handpicked one-off screenings that push forth synergies between the film and music industry introducing music, artists and the histories behind them. Each film had one screening at either 11:00 (Small Auditorium, Tampere Hall) or at 16:00 (Maestro, Tampere Hall). These screenings are only accessible to accredited WOMEX delegates.
The WOMEX Film Programme extends into Public Screenings hosted 2019 by Arthouse Cinema Niagara, an indie cinema in Tampere, giving a chance to local audiences to experience a vibrant and engaging set of films. The public programme was accessible to WOMEX delegates once the expo at Tampere Hall closed.
The WOMEX Film Library is a physical space that features an extended selection of films highlighting new projects, colloborations along with previews of unreleased films. The films in the library are independent of a scheduled screening and can be watched by accredited WOMEX delegates on one of the four available viewing stations at a time/ day convenient to them. All seven films were accessible on-demand at anytime between 10:00-18:00 from Thursday 24 October through Saturday 26 October.
