What we see sometimes has a stronger impact than what we read or hear. The 2020 Fatherhood Image Film Festival looks at how visuals in movies and the media portray dads and affect people’s perception of paternal parenthood.
Fatherhood Image Film Festival (FIFF), now in its seventh year, runs from Oct. 23-25 online (it is normally based in New York City). It features screenings from emerging producers, videographers and filmmakers from all over the world. FIFF has a mission to showcase new films and young filmmakers and their various takes on fatherhood.
Films at the festival, according to its founders, represent perspectives on fatherhood from wives, sons, daughters, brothers and sisters lending understanding and compassion to the important role fathers play in the family structure.
