Jasmin Tabatabai takes over the patronage of the 24th Women’s Worlds Film Festival

We are delighted to announce that the renowned actress and singer Jasmin Tabatabai will be the patron of the 24th Women’s Worlds Film Festival! Ms. Tabatabai, known for her impressive performances on screen and her commitment to social justice, will enrich our festival this year with her support.
“Films that look at the world through the eyes of a woman (and other marginalized people) are still not a matter of course. That’s why I’m delighted to be the patron of this special film festival, which focuses on specificaly that.”– Jasmin Tabatabai
Every year, the Women’s Worlds Film Festival presents a diverse selection of films that deal with the realities and stories of women from all over the world. With Jasmin Tabatabai as our patron, we are sending a strong signal for cultural diversity and women’s rights. Together with her we are thrilled to continue our commitment to equality and empowerment.
