Final Girls Berlin Film Festival showcases horror cinema that’s directed, written, and/or produced by women. We are committed to creating space for female voices and visions, whether monstrous or heroic, in the horror genre. We are lashing against representations of women as beautified victims and constructions of male fantasies or anxieties, and are working towards the primacy of women as subjects and storytellers in horror.

Symbols of birth, death and rebirth grace the film and asks the audience to ponder the question: How far would you go to turn back time?
