WWFC virtual events spring and summer 20

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 so the only way to see the whole event is to register and watch it live. We do, however, post a video of the highlights for some of our events on our YouTube channel and on our IGTV account.
