🪓The Ax Wound Film Festival features an eclectic selection of horror films written and directed by women and non-binary filmmakers from around the world.🎞
🪓Our foundational ethos is rooted in and inspired by DIY guerilla art movements and grassroots activism.📼
🪓We approach every initiative under our umbrella through an intersectional womanist framework to foster support and amplify the voices of an eclectic community of storytellers whose work spans horror in all its forms in the no-wave, lo-fi, and mainstream spaces.📹
“Ax Wound showcases features, shorts, and trailers and offers plenty of panels and networking opportunities, plus a long list of attending moviemakers and other guests, all part of a friendly, supportive environment for female talent. Diversity is not just Ax Wound’s mission statement; it also describes the impressive variety of themes and subjects of its showcased films.” -MovieMaker Magazine🗯🖤🪓
About the amazing venue:
The Coolidge Corner Theatre is an independent, nonprofit cinema and cultural institution with four screens and a capacity for over 700 audience members. Since 1933, audiences in the greater Boston area have relied on the Coolidge for the best of contemporary independent film, repertory, and educational programming.
🪓Award statues are fun but hinder critical networking and community building among womxn and non-binary artists. Once selected all filmmakers are entitled to the same opportunities and potential benefits.
🪓We are still in the early days of our 2023 planning but will update this section every time new sponsors and gifts are announced. Past years include filmmaker gift bags and opportunities to win Final Draft screenwriting software, magazine subscriptions, press interviews, and more.
