The annual Women’s Film Festival in Brattleboro, VT is the longest-running women’s film festival in New England. Now in its 30th year, it is a celebration of movies from around the world and a platform for women to tell their own stories. It is also a major fundraiser for the work of the Women’s Freedom Center, a non-profit domestic and sexual violence organization in Southeastern Vermont.
For 2022, after having to cancel the festival twice due to COVID, the Women's Film Festival will be doing things a little differently by going virtual. We are excited that this will allow us to continue the festival regardless of what may come.
Over the course of two weeks in March, documentaries, feature films, and shorts are screened. There is truly something for everyone with films about sports, arts, friendship, activism, lesbian/queer lives, motherhood, gender roles, religion, and romance.
Many of the films which have been included in the Women’s Film Festival over the years have gone on to receive acclaim and award nominations.
To be considered, films must be directed by and be about women.
Please submit films in their final, complete state via online screener. Films must have been completed after March 2019.
