Cinema returns to theaters

As the Flying Broom team, it is our mission to help reinvigorate the unique experience of watching films in the film theater, which has been disrupted by the pandemic, and to provide a platform that will hopefully enable women filmmakers and audiences to engage in dialogue. We believe that this dialogue will be empowering, and will encourage a spirit of solidarity.
