Filmmaker Status: We are looking to feature female producers, directors, screenwriters, cinematographers, film editors, sound professionals, lighting specialist and set production designers.

What we look for?

We are looking for films that speak to viewers at an artistic, informative, hopeful or entertaining level. It must be evident that you are devoted to the craft of filmmaking through the strength of your script and production quality. Your film should not debase or devalue any group or be derogatory in any manner. We champion positive provocative films. Overall, we are seeking films that spark dialogue and that leaves us wanting to see more of your work. We want to applaud your efforts and see you produce even more compelling films as a woman filmmaker.

 

What we avoid? Commercials, promotional videos, music videos with no story line and fashion films with no story line.
