We review every application and take great care to place accepted filmmakers onto a crew that has everything they need to make a film. We are looking for talent, experience, and motivation.


Because one of the main goals of this challenge is to forge lasting connections through filmmaking, we hope that you will participate regardless of whether or not you are assigned to your first-choice position. 


This is not a competition but a challenge; see what you're truly capable of! We hope you have fun while helping to boost the representation of self-identifying women behind and in front of the camera.

(As these are not SAG-AFTRA productions, actors must be non-union.)
