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.

We place professional filmmakers on crews to write, shoot and edit a short film in one weekend with top-of-the-line gear. Since our first challenge in January 2018, we have made 24 short films and worked with over 500 women. This grassroots movement combats the gender imbalance of the current film industry by creating films with women behind and in front of the camera.

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