The Eve Film Festival (EFF) showcases and supports work by women in film. We provide a forum for women from diverse backgrounds, experiences, and stages in their careers to present and celebrate their art. We strive to create a space for audiences and filmmakers from all areas to come together and share ideas, build a community, and honour the creations presented at our festival. We screen all genres with the idea that diversity in styles and voices is what inspires filmmaking to be a perpetually evolving form. This community aims to be welcoming and inclusive to all people who are brought together by film - everyone is welcome to enjoy the wonderful work we present!

PLEASE NOTE: Eve Film Festival screens films directed or co-directed by women. Please do not apply to our festival if the film is not directed or co-directed by a woman.

As of today, we do not give out awards or prizes. The focus is on showcasing and promoting womxn filmmakers.

    This is one of the world's best women's film festivals - quality programming, strong communication levels and above all they're passionate about indie filmmakers.

    Eve always replied very quickly and had great communication. It was a cozy festival with some great quality shorts- a very welcoming vibe and great female identifying creators.
