The International WAMMFest (Women And Minorities in Media Festival) celebrates and encourages diversity in media production, audio, video, animation, and film by student and professional media makers. We promote diversity in media production through our call and festival.
We are excited to announce the annual call for short audio and video works for the 11th International WAMMFest, Women And Minorities in Media Festival.
All works entered must either be created with a women and/or minority in a key creative role (video: writer, producer, or director; audio: writer, producer, engineer, or mixer) or of interest to women and/or minorities.
The works entered into WAMMFest will be juried with the official selections and winners playing during the 11th WAMMFest in Spring 2018.
Preference will be given to fictional and non-fictional stories that feature the everyday lives of women and/or minorities (including LGBT) that feature three dimensional, well-formed characters.
The festival primarily takes place on a university campus (Towson University). We have a very high bar for officially selected films and media. For students and emerging film and media makers (5 or less years experience) in the Mid-Atlantic area (MD, VA, PA, NJ, NY, DC, DE), we have a special category that you can choose to enter your film/media into, with 1 or 2 dedicated screenings.
For more information: www.wammtu.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org
For a limited number of Official Selection filmmakers, WAMMFest is pleased to offer travel reimbursement, small honorariums, and festival passes.
We do everything we can to get as many of the Official Selection film and media makers to WAMMFest as possible. We feel this deepens the discussion and impact of the film on the audience and filmmaker and creates networking opportunities for everybody involved. With a small budget, we can only offer a limited number of honorariums.
Entries must be 20 minutes or less (category dependent).
All works need to either be created with a woman and/or minority in a key creative role (video: director, writer, producer) or the subject matter needs to be of interest to women and/or minorities. Preference given to entries by women and/or minorities.
Works entered with no entry fee and/or do not fit the mission of the festival have no guarantee of being watched in its entirety during the screening process.
All entries must be submitted digitally through FilmFreeway or otherwise online.
