Apply for our signature film challenge
Women's Weekend Film Challenge is for professional filmmakers who are looking to expand their network while creating a polished short film in one weekend. It is free to apply and participate. Everyone works together to make the best film possible in a collaborative and intense environment.
You can apply for up to three production roles on this application form. Please make sure to have all of your work samples ready to upload. Due to the high volume of applications, the chances of acceptance, particularly in the roles of director, actor, and writer are extremely low. If your goal is to participate in the film challenge and gain a professional network from this experience, we suggest applying for multiple roles (as long as you are qualified for those roles).

Our Los Angeles launch
After hosting three film challenges in New York City, we hosted our inaugural Los Angeles challenge in February 2020. During this LA challenge, we made 6 films with 180 professional female filmmakers, then premiered those films at ArcLight Hollywood on March 5, 2020.
Due to COVID-19, we have not yet resumed our in-person challenges. We will be announcing our next challenge via our email list and on social media.
Check out some press, film clips and statistics from our LA launch.
