KIMFF 2016 Day 2- Friday 9 December

Women take centre stage in KIMFF Day 2, with the world premiere of Daughters of the curved moon, Mira, a female trail runner, and Leeches (pictured); the story of a woman's ingenuity to save her little sister from an unwanted marriage. 

While Who's gonna love me now? tells the story of a homosexual man's battle with his orthodox Jewish family in Israel. 

Make sure you don't miss one of the KIMFF Festival Director's favourites: Sacred, a documentary made by 40 filmmaking teams across the world exploring faith and religion. 

Remember to look at the exact location of each of the films as we are screening at two different locations today.
