Here we are in 2017, still we have less focus on women and only a few working female filmmakers, and even fewer good films related to inspiring and empowering females. You can't imagine the innumerable hungry, pregnant women who are getting hurt and abused; or young girls being killed by their family or governments to bring back honor in what they believe. We believe it is shameful to see that in our world we are still seeing such crimes specific to women, happening every single minute.
With that desire in my heart, We organized WIND International Film Festival. Together we are all looking to make a difference in the world and we believe that by focusing on films about women's problem, we are going to have the most substantial impact. We will reveal untold stories to the world and we will try to find solutions for problems. It is the WIND challenge to filmmakers to focus and find ways to make wonderful films with a universal meaning. The world is full of feminine predicaments; filmmakers are challenged to isolate problems, focus and show some solution or expanse of understanding through your film.
The WIND Film Festival is likened to a breeze used to inspire all, specifically women in need and danger. It is a Non-Profit film festival working to end domestic, sexual violence, and harassment all around the world, especially in the Middle East. We are committed to offering support and advocacy to survivors of violence, and prevention and educational activities to help create a community in which violence is not tolerated. If we foster carefully and with love, it will pay huge dividends—in love, care, and understanding in a better world.
