Screening at Brussels International Women's Film Festival

We're having our Belgian premiere at the 9th edition of Brussels International Women's Film Festival on January 29th! Period Stories is in the closing screening of short films at the festival on Sunday at 7pm. The screening is titled Vive le Féminisme and the description reads: "Around the world, women claim their rights with humour and insolence."

This is the first festival that found the film on their own, instead of me submitting it. Apparently, one of the organizers had seen it at VoxFeminae Film Festival in Zagreb, Croatia in 2015. Good things come out of good things!

They've also invited me there so I'm looking at flights to attend the screening. I've just moved to Tallinn yesterday for an exchange semester at Tallinn University and the first day of school is on the 30th so I will probably miss it... However, can't say no to an invitation to Brussels!
