The Feminist Film Series is a year-round feature film screening series programmed and hosted by the Barnard College Media Center. By popular demand, we are programming an evening comprised entirely of short films that feature animation or animated elements.

We engage with the community to challenge what feminist film is, and aim to create a positive discourse for fellowship and social change amongst media makers and media audiences.

Please stay tuned for future iterations of Feminist Film Series which will focus on live action, as well as AR/VR pieces.

By submitting to Feminist Film Series, Filmmaker confirms that they have all necessary legal authority and rights required to submit their film, and to publicly screen said film in the case of acceptance.
If a film is accepted, we prefer but do not require that one filmmaker attend the screening to represent the film during the audience Q&A.
Films and videos that are animated or incorporate animation elements of any genre: narrative, documentary, experimental, dance, student and young filmmakers are accepted.
Feminist Film Series is not a “premiere” festival meaning that your film does not have to be a premiere to be accepted. We do not accept works in progress.
Preview format must be through secure online screeners.
Non-English language films must be subtitled in English.
