ZIFF has used the platform of the Women’s Panorama to highlight and address pertinent gender and social issues. The Panorama therefore becomes a medium of Women’s Power and Visibility. The Women’s Panorama commonly comprises of a series of workshops, seminars and symposia organized and centred on the visibility of women in and through the medium of cinema, the arts and the media.

Workshops, Community Dialogues and Film Screenings

Annually ZIFF convenes forums to discuss social practices and policy questions curtailing women’s human and legal rights. Workshops are held in each locality during the five days of the panorama. The majority of participants from rural areas were farmers or members of cooperatives or groups. Participants in the urban setting are more varied and comprise of members from the civil society, representatives from key ministries, the media, business-women and students.
