Women's Weekend Film Challenge works for
gender equity by
creating opportunities
for women to bring their leadership, talents, and stories to the forefront of the
film industry.

Women's Weekend Film Challenge (WWFC) places professional filmmakers on crews to write, shoot and edit a short film in one weekend and provides top-of-the-line equipment, insurance and workshops. This career-building opportunity is free for participants.


To date, WWFC has worked with over 700 women to produce 30 short films, which have been accepted to more than 80 festivals. This grassroots, bi-coastal movement combats the gender imbalance of the film industry by providing an intensive networking experience and telling women's stories on screen.

As a response to COVID-19, WWFC launched a virtual workshop series featuring the top women of Hollywood. Read more here.
