Seeking short animated films less than 10 minutes in length for an evening celebration of work by women directors from around the globe.

A Global Cavalcade of Animated Shorts #DirectedbyWomen will take place in Bloomington, Indiana, USA as part of the 4th Annual #DirectedbyWomen Worldwide Film Viewing Party, which brings the global film community together for a film-viewing party appreciating an incredible diversity of films throughout the month of September. During the Worldwide Film Viewing Party, film lovers will gather together in their communities around the world for film screenings and guest filmmaker visits—all designed to focus attention on women film directors and their work. Film lovers everywhere are invited to co-create the Worldwide Film Viewing Party by creating their own events—large or small.

A Global Cavalcade of Animated Shorts #DirectedbyWomen screening is FREE, open to the public and will be held at The Indiana University Libraries Screening Room—a beautiful, intimate venue with great projection and sound.

The event will be curated by filmmaker Laura Ivins and Barbara Ann O'Leary, catalyst behind the #DirectedbyWomen initiative.

Thanks in advance to every woman director who offers her animated short for consideration. It will be an honor to receive your work.

There will be no charge for admission to the screenings and no awards or prizes. The celebration is purely for the art of watching and talking about the work!

The films need to (a) be directed by women, (b) not exceed 10 minutes in length, (c) be animated, and (d) be available for screening (no exhibition conflicts of any kind).
