The FutureFemme Manifesto

A FutureFemme is someone who doesn’t ask for permission.
A FutureFemme knows her worth, her value, and her goals.
A FutureFemme doesn’t need anyone to open doors for her.
A FutureFemme doesn’t take no for an answer.
A FutureFemme ignores an irrelevant establishment.
A FutureFemme creates iconic, inspirational content on no one’s terms but her own.

Overall Rating
  • Stefanie Sparks

    I submitted to the festival and received an acceptance email then NO OTHER communication. Not cool. :/

    August 2019
  • I didn't get any correspondence from the festival. I emailed/massaged with no replies. No information about the festival on the website. Basically took submission money from filmmakers and did nothing. Total scam.

    June 2019
  • I was happy to be accepted into FutureFemmeFest. The festival is unique - open to abstract, art-driven projects. Good communication as well. Thanks.

    May 2019
  • There is an acute lack of communication.
