Athena Film Festival Call for Entries

Happy first day of Summer, everyone!! Today I'd like to talk about another great film festival for Women: the Athena Film Festival. What makes this festival unique is the fact that only films about women in leadership are accepted. Take a look at this video below and the blurb from their website. The deadline for submission is September 15th!

A Celebration of Women and Leadership
Heading toward its fourth year, the Athena Film Festival -- a celebration of women and leadership -- is an engaging weekend of feature films, documentaries and shorts that highlight women’s leadership in real life and the fictional world. The four-day festival, which includes conversations with directors and Hollywood stars and workshops for filmmakers, has quickly established itself as one of the most prestigious festivals of its kind. The festival will be held Feb. 6 - 9, 2014 in the heart of New York -- at Barnard, the most sought-after women’s college in the nation.

*Do you have a helpful resource you’d like to promote? Do you know about a great resource to share with the Broads? Contact me to be a part of helpful resource Friday.

  1. Yes, this is a great one! I've attended the last two years in a row and have not been disappointed. Melissa Silverstein of the Women & Hollywood blog runs it and does a fantastic job. She brings together great films, inspiring panelist and special guests (Diablo Cody, Gloria Steinem, etc). If you have a film that fits the criteria (even just a tiny bit) do submit it! And if you live in NY, plan on attending in Feb. You won't be sorry!
