We believe women have fascinating stories to tell! Women make up 52% of characters on film, but only 17% of writers for these characters are female. We shine a light on short films that are written and/or directed by women or gender-nonconforming folks who identify with womanhood.
Our festival is 100% volunteer-based. All proceeds go towards grants, awards for filmmakers and the festival.
Our 3-day festival in Wilmington, NC showcases short format films of all genres from all over the world!
