After a couple of wilderness years (with the Film Club scrabbling to find funds!), the WOW Women's Film Club is back with its much-loved and ever popular film events. Our relaunch in November saw nearly 80 women at a screening of the inspiring Saudi Arabian film Wadjda. And on February 5th, we had 121 women coming to see Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.
The number of tickets sold at WOW in 2013 were up 14% on last year, with attendances at Chapter up 25% and Aberystwyth up 75%.
With a total of around 4,000 attendances, WOW’s average attendances across all screenings and events was up 46% in 2013 to 74 people per show.
Ken Loach was joined by Michael Gubbins, Julian Tudor Hart, Dai Walters and Ray Davies for a passionate, sold-out Q&A and Welsh premiere screening of The Spirit of ‘45 at Chapter Arts Centre on March 6th.
