More than a month after the reopening of Maus Hábitos, FEMME SESSIONS return in July with a double session of Films at the Table.

For this #26 session, which happens on July 29th at 21h00, FEMME SESSION presents, in partnership with FILMS FEMME MÉDITERRANÉE, a three short-films program about family relationships – accomplices or conflictual.

The FILMS FEMMES MEDITERRANEE Association was founded in 2006. The annual autumn meetings bring together women filmmakers from around the Mediterranean. Its objective is the discovery of new and confirmed talents.

*Every last Wednesday of each month, the Maus Hábitos screens thematic cinema cycles in which the common denominator is films directed by women. The aim is to give visibility to the work of women in the film industry, through the projection of their works and, whenever possible, their presence in the sessions, promoting the encounter between the public and the authors.
