The Censored Women’s Film Festival, a project of Honor Diaries, gives voice to women who are censored in their own countries because of their gender and oftentimes, because of the topics they cover.
Films chosen push the envelope in the cinematic portrayal of women’s rights and brings together dynamic speakers (experts, filmmakers and activists) from around the globe.
Each year the festival selects the most powerful films which uncover silenced women’s issues, using this event to give voice to the voiceless.
The project began in 2015.
