The Wilmington Female Filmmakers Collective is holding its sixth 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 encourage filmmakers who identify as a woman and gender fluid/non-binary folks who identify with womanhood to submit their films!
***The 2021 festival has been postponed until June 11-13th in the hope that we can have a traditional festival. If it is still not safe to gather we will have an outdoor "walk-in" festival to maintain social distancing requirements.***
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 nine 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 39 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.
- Films made from 2018 to present will be considered
