We welcome filmmakers and screenwriters from around the world! We accept feature films and shorts as well as feature-length and short scripts. Our main goal is equality and empowerment in the cinematic arts. The Her Vision International Film Festival is here to highlight the achievements of women and female-identifying directors, writers, editors and producers. In addition to our mission of equality, we also underscore the importance of unity. For example, our first year's Feature Film Winner was a female producer/writer with a male director. We also welcome and encourage LGBTQ creatives. You may submit a screenplay or a film if you are a male or male-identifying director or writer if your story shows a female with some agency or shows the plight of being a female or a member of the LGBTQ community. We are here to encourage and empower creatives regardless of gender. If you have questions as to whether you or your project qualifies, feel free to reach out; Caterinacampagna26@gmail.com.
What also makes our festival stand out is that we have a Rewrite and Re-edit section. Screenwriters know that writing is rewriting and filmmakers know that shooting the ending that you really want is sometimes only possible after a deadline. To that end, we offer you a chance to resubmit your work with a half-off your original submission fee discount.
Thank you for bringing your passion to the table!

Our current prizes include an InkTip subscription and the opportunity to speak to screenwriter, author, and UCLA professor, Diane Drake. Or veteran producer/entertainment lawyer and actor, Bruce Nahin, one-on-one.
Additionally, your film may be chosen to be screened at a wonderful venue in NYC, even if you don't take the top prize.
Also, some filmmakers will be asked to be interviewed regarding their projects. So, yay! Free press!
