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.

LA challenge:
Feb. 20-23



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.


Since its first challenge in January 2018, WWFC has worked with over 500 women to produce 24 short films, which have been accepted to more than 60 festivals. This grassroots movement combats the gender imbalance of the film industry by providing an intensive networking experience and telling women's stories on screen.

It's FREE to apply to and participate in the challenge!
