Category Rules

Films entered must have been produced, directed, written or edited by a woman. Films by men will be accepted if the subject matter is about or directly impacts women.

All non-English language films must have English subtitles

First and second-time directors encourage.

This category is specifically for any non-fiction film with a running time of less than 50 minutes or more, with the exception of entirely scripted or improvised fictionalizations of actual events.

If your documentary contains some dramatization of actual events, you may submit in this category, but we will ultimately decide which program is best suited for your project if accepted. In order to qualify as an International Documentary Feature Film, more than half of t he project's financing must originate from outside of the United States.
