WOMEN MUST BE INVOLVED IN THE FILM IN ONE OF THE ROLES LISTED IN RULES!! If there is not a listing or one emailed to us,

if there is not a brief SUMMARY or SYNOPSIS about your film on your submission, your film will NOT be accepted.

Women's Only Entertainment (WOEFF) is a MONTHLY online festival for shorts of various lengths. Online meaning that we have judges who vote on all submissions accepted into the festival. A new festival each month beginning on the first and ending on the 30th of the month. Winners announced the following month on the 5th.

PLEASE, if you submit to a specific category, please make sure the woman's name in that role is listed on your credits sheet of your FilmFreeway page. It slows us down on judging (and could affect the status of your film) if we have to hunt for it. Thank you.

Winners are announced on that date on our Facebook page and by email.

Make sure to LIKE us and follow us on Facebook for updates and winners posted.

Winners will be able to join the year end celebration for women filmmakers where the films accepted will be showcased, awards will be given out then, and an opportunity to network and share knowledge will also be available.

Winners can post our laurels for official selection and official winner on anything they would like to use to promote their film. They will receive certificates once they are ready after the end of each festival.

MAKE SURE YOU GIVE YOUR FEMALE CAST AND CREW AN OPPORTUNITY TO WIN -- Either make sure you list them on your submission or by email so we know (if you email put the word FEMALE CREW in your subject line) WE SUPPORT WOMEN IN FILM! So help us do so by listing them.

    This is an amazing festival with wonderful people behind the scenes and some really talented filmmakers presenting their work. It was a great experience and a pleasure to have my film, Final Polish (Best Comedy Short), recognized by a film festival that really cares about filmmakers.
