About the Event

WFTV members are invited to this special in-person event, in partnership with the Financial Times and the House of KOKO, exploring the state of democracy, its relevance, fragility and value, as told by women in film and television. 

The Financial Times launched a four-part short film series at the start of 2024 examining what democracy looks like in 2024, as more than 54 countries - including US, India, South Africa, Russia, Indonesia, Taiwan - are set to hold major elections. To help stimulate a global conversation at this crucial juncture, the FT commissioned award-winning global authors Margaret Atwood, Elif Shafak, Lola Shoneyin and comedian Aditi Mittal, to describe their unique perspectives on democracy, highlighting its relevance, fragility and value.

The films were directed by Juliet Riddell, head of new formats at the FT, and produced in collaboration with a number of artists, including experiential art collective Marshmallow Laser Feast and musician Made Kuti.

To further the debate, we invite you to join a live discussion on the role that film and TV plays in a healthy democracy, featuring world renowned writer Lola Shoneyin, based in Lagos; award winning comedian Aditi Mitttal, based in Mumbai; and director Juliet Riddell, will come together to discuss the role that film and television plays in a healthy democracy, moderated by Katie Bailiff, CEO of Women in Film and Television (WFTV)
