There is an important film festival that is missing from your list, that of Women's Voices Now.

I'd really like to be in touch with you about this and to learn more about your work and the possibility of you writing a piece about WVN. Please contact me at your convenience!Best, Heidiheidi@womensvoicesnow.orgReplyDeleteRepliesReplyUnknownFebruary 14, 2013 at 11:22 AMHi - we'd love to have the Women's Film Festival in Brattleboro, VT added to your list.

I was a guest panelist there along with my partner, producer & comedian Brian Vermeire. Here are some clips. There was good networking and a great final event.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHPef6RrvvEhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kCv3csJmXAhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cn_05HsrZSQReplyDeleteRepliesReplywellywood womanApril 4, 2013 at 1:40 PMMany thanks, Kristina! Always great to have insider info!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyDixie ProductionsApril 4, 2013 at 8:10 PMLooking for some great women's festivals to submit our brand new documentary short film TITSReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAriel doughertyNovember 5, 2013 at 9:24 AMWellywood Woman, A great list of current women's film festival. Thank you. Does anyone keep a list and work to archive (programs, posters, reviews, name of organizers, etc) of the HISTORY of women's film festivals?? I have urged the filmmakers of "BE NATURAL: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blache" to PLEASE interview feminist film festival programmers who have been showing her works since at least 1973, that I know of -- ie place women's film festival within the historic context to recover this hugely important woman film pioneer. Also urge you and your community to check out (& Like): www.facebook.com/SilverscreenRoadshow I am working to bring back some of the original films produced by Women Make Movies in the 1970s, many of them narratives, that haven't been seen in years. And get them, and other films on the road! -- Ariel dougherty ReplyDeleteReplieswellywood womanMarch 24, 2015 at 3:32 PMHi I've only just seen this! Thank you. There is a mailing list for film festival studies generally that would know about this. Will have a look for the address and leave it here. Checking out your FB page now!DeleteRepliesReplywellywood womanMarch 24, 2015 at 3:47 PMThis is the group http://www.filmfestivalresearch.org/ and there is a woman there, Skadi Loist, who is very knowledgeable about women's film fests, probably you already know her?DeleteRepliesReplyReplyUnknownMarch 23, 2015 at 2:43 PMDear Wellywood Woman,I'm trying to get my film "The Trail", where I play the lead role to a film festival in New Zealand specifically.Any advice on which ones would be interested? It is unique to other pioneer/western dramas as it places a young woman's story in the winter of 1848 of survival in the wilderness at the center.Here is a link to the trailer:http://www.trailmovie.com/It already won best film and best actress by 2 other film festivals in the US. It's such a unique story that I'm so proud of, and would love to see it screened in NZ.Any advice/info would be much appreciated!Thanks!-Jasmin Jandreauwww.jasminjandreau.comReplyDeleteReplieswellywood womanMarch 24, 2015 at 3:51 PMHi Jasmin. The main film festival that takes features is the NZ International Film Festival which travels around New Zealand, though there are two smaller ones, like the Maoriland Film Festival and Wairoa Festival (both for indigenous filmmaking) that also show features and Show Me Shorts for short films only. We have 4 million people here, so that's it! Maybe Australia would be better to try? Sendng you every good wish--DeleteRepliesReplyReplyUnknownJuly 22, 2015 at 2:57 AMThank you for taking the time to publish this information very useful!

Women's Voices Now would love to update our post. Please contact Kelsey at firstname.lastname@example.org so she can send you updated information for our festival. Thank you.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyUnknownOctober 27, 2016 at 8:07 AMHello! I am getting in touch as I am a 3rd year Creative Events Management student from Falmouth University currently research feminist film festivals for my dissertation. The focus of my dissertation at present is the presence of female directors at film festivals, with a more intent focus to look at why there is a lack of female directors programmed in film festivals and the experiences/barriers women have faced regarding this subject. I am looking for female filmmakers to answer one question regarding this topic, to gather narratives from the industry and collate them to create one strong account of the unheard voices. I hope that my research could then be used to benefit both the film industry and female filmmakers to gain an insight into this current issue and help address it in the future. Thank you for taking the time to consider talking to me! If you are interested my email address is email@example.com Kind regards, Megan ThompsonReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAdd commentLoad more...
