    While we were unable to attend the festival, we were honored to have our documentary premiere at the IWFF! The communication was fantastic and we hope to be involved and attend it in the future.

    I was not able to attend, but was most honored that CROWBAR was selected as a Semi-Finalist. The film was about women, as well as written and directed by a woman. It was wonderful to be a part. Thank you!

    The interaction with IWFF was very positive. I was unable to attend as based in South Africa but found the support and recognition extremely uplifting / invigorating. Thank you for a great experience and for supporting Women in Film!
