Interested in submitting your film to the 2016 Athena Film Festival?

The festival is now accepting submissions! Please read our criteria and fill out the form below to submit your application.

What We Look For:

Documentaries, Features and Shorts that:

  • Reveal the diverse narratives of women leaders from all walks of life—narratives of ambition, courage, strength and resilience.
  • Showcase women leaders who help us interpret the reality of the modern world—captivating stories of truth, determination, innovation and vision.
  • Highlight the talents of emerging artists — capturing a new generation’s take on what truly makes exemplary women leaders.

Keep In Mind:

  • All films must feature a female in a leadership position at the center of the story.
  • Films may be directed by a person or people of any gender.
  • Films that are directed by women but do not focus on female leadership will not be considered.
