Women X is an exciting, fresh short film festival based in the North East of England, celebrating the achievements of emerging and established talent from women and non-binary directors, writers, and producers. Our programme strives to include stories that challenge the narrative set by mainstream media, exploring both fictional and real stories that open our eyes, break our hearts, make us laugh, and question our perceptions.

For its third year we’ll be showcasing a variety of exciting short films on the big screen, showcasing the exciting future of filmmakers in the UK and from around the world. Alongside our film programme, we have insightful workshops where you can learn more about filmmaking and working in the industry, as well as our themed film quiz and awards ceremony.


Tickets from £8.00 to £24.00 with VIP festival bags available, discounted rate for students, concessions and those on low income.
