Virtual Events

We're bringing Hollywood's top directors into your living room for Q&As and watch parties.

In the response to the pandemic, Women's Weekend Film Challenge is offering a new series of virtual events with Hollywood's best female filmmakers.

Each week, we'll be offering virtual screenings and Q&As with directors or workshops/feedback sessions with women who made your favorite films and shows . Because this is a difficult time for everyone and we don't want to create financial barriers to this informative and inspiring sessions, we're keeping tickets pay-what-you-can! 

Events tickets are non-refundable and we do not release the full recordings of the events afterward. We do, however, post a video of the highlights for some of our events on Instagram, so make sure to follow us there, @womensweekendfilmchallenge.
