About The Festival
Alliance of Women Filmmakers Alliance of Women Filmmakers created this festival seven years ago with a goal to increase opportunities for women filmmakers. Each year the festival has grown in size and reach.
We are proud to have showcased more than 800 films made by women of diverse back grounds from all over the world. We have also established a network of women filmmakers world wide who share the same passion in creating opportunities and powerful screen images of women.
Described by Back Stage West Magazine, a leading source for entertainment news, as a "Must-attend event for all women in the entertainment industry," the festival presents narratives, documentaries, animations and student short films. We also presents a variety of industry panels, workshops and seminars to help women filmmakers craft their skills and stay connected with other women filmmakers. Our 2011 distribution workshops were taught by Akua Boyenne, a Los Angeles-based entertainment attorney who specializes in motion picture and television transactions. Her clients include award-winning and aspiring writers, directors, actors, producers and production companies that work in both the studio and independent systems. Previous year's panels and workshops have been hosted by; The Women's Steering Committee of the Writers Guild, International Documentary Association and Women Make Movies New York.
The festival is now going into its eight year to continue its goal of providing a valuable avenue of exposure and networking for women filmmakers, to share their diverse stories and bring awareness to critical issues through visual media.
