The Wilmington Female Filmmakers Collective is holding its fourth annual Cinema Sisters International Film Festival! We continue with our tradition of showcasing the works of female filmmakers all over the world in an effort to encourage and support our sister filmmakers.

We are asking our sister filmmakers to share their short films – narratives, docs, experimental, animation, any genre – we want to see it all! Join us as we celebrate the power of female filmmakers!! This two-day, laid-back festival is all about films made by women (including persons identifying as women).

Films must be complete, no longer than thirty minutes and **must be directed by women.**

Wilmington Female Filmmakers Collective is dedicated to cultivating a diverse environment where women can realize their artistic cinematic visions. While less than 10% of all films are made by women, by empowering each other through educational opportunities, mentoring, and a supportive creative community, WilmFFilm aims to galvanize and expand women's contribution to filmmaking.

Guidelines for submission:

-Films must be completed (no works in progress).
-Must be under 30 minutes.
-Must be directed by a woman.
-Films and videos of any genre: narrative, documentary, animation, experimental...
-Films must be submitted via an online submission method.

    This festival was such a blast! The whole team was on their game, and created a really fun and welcoming environment, with plenty of encouragement for us to meet and mingle with other filmmakers and audience members. Hope to be back many times!

    I didn't attend personally the festival in 2019, but afer my film was officially selected, the correspondence with the festival organization was fast, efficient and very friendly. The programme on the festival days was clear and concise and it was prepared long enough in advance, what can only please filmmakers and an audience as well. Well done, ladies!

    LOVED this festival. Great communication, awesome staff and volunteers. They had cool things t do, Wilmington is a great town, and lots of support for this festival from the locals. Every screening was sold out or very close to it. Would totally enter again and go back.
