FEM FEST is an international, QUARTERLY, online film festival geared toward recognizing bad-ass female creators. It's empowered women encouraging the empowerment of other women! We aim to encourage the creation of dope content that features and/or is created by dope women. We're beckoning all films (feature and short), scripts, music videos, web series, and documentaries (all genres considered) featuring strong female actors (lead/supporting), directors, producers, and/or cinematographers. We want to see films where females are "doing their thing." If it was directed by a female, we want to see it! If the cinematographer was a female, we want to see it! If the lead or supporting/actor is a female, we want to see it? Have a strong female presence but don't see the job title listed, we want to see it! Just be sure to specify on your submission so that you are not disqualified.
Your film will be judged and viewed by a panel of film professionals that have been in the entertainment business for years and counting. Each quarter our judges watch and review the submitted films. In addition, reviews will be placed on the festival website for the winners of the quarter. All winners will be announced on the website, social media and via email.
On Feb 10, 2019, there will be a live screening for all of the past years winners.
Social hour will begin at 6pm and screening will start promptly at 645.
