Wilmington Female Filmmakers Collective is holding its third annual Film Festival. In our third year not only have we changed our festival name, but we have also opened our submissions to all of the US as well as international filmmakers. Although our name has changed, we have continued with our tradition of showcasing the works of female filmmakers in an effort to encourage and support our sister filmmakers. We are asking our sister filmmakers to share their films – narratives, docs, experimental, animation – we want to see it all. We want to show your films – we want to celebrate the power of female filmmakers!! This two-day laid back festival is all about films made by 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 womens’ 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.
