Women of the Island

A Ten Days on the Island Festival event


Women Of The Island is a multi-award winning series of short documentaries (5-8 minutes each) celebrating the inspiring and untold stories of women who inhabit the island of Tasmania – stories as diverse, complex and interesting as the women themselves.

Seeking to give a female voice to contemporary Tasmanian history, independent filmmaking collective Rebecca Thomson, Lara van Raay and Ninna Millikin created the first three episodes in 2017, receiving global accolades and awards festivals including LAWEBFEST, UK Web Fest, Copenhagen Web Fest, and 150,000 online views.

Now, in partnership with Ten Days on the Island, the collective has produced 10 new films exploring the experiences of extraordinary women from diverse regions of Tasmania. These uplifting films will be shared for the first time at community screenings across Tasmania during the Festival, celebrating the women themselves and their local communities.
