Women Through Film is a Ghanaian film production based initiative trying to encourage and facilitate young girls and women to use self-expression, storytelling, fiction, and citizen journalism through filmmaking to raise their voice and create social change. Aspiring Women film directors workshop connects women, their stories, and their causes through film, by conducting a series of interactive activities for young girls and women.

Film can be used as a weapon to counter different types of social problems. Through workshops, seminars, and mentorship sessions, we aim to enhance these skills and give women a platform to display their work on an international forum

It is an initiative to celebrate the success stories, struggles, and achievements of inspiring women from all walks of life. We aim to create an army of vocal, confident, fearless, and economically independent female filmmakers who can tell stories about issues that affect them, using film and other interactive media.
