The festival includes the opening ceremony, specialized workshops and expert meetings on the films.

'Meeting with the Leaf' recounts the story of an elderly lady whose husband has passed away a long time ago. She believes that his soul has been reincarnated in a mulberry tree that has grown next to his grave. So she treats the tree just like her husband.

The WFA is a volunteer-run and operated celebration of the diversity of local and international film-making.
