MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Female Eye Film Festival

“Always Honest, Not Always Pretty”

The Female Eye Film Festival (est. 2001) is an annual competitive international independent women directors film festival. We present high caliber films in drama, comedy, sci-fi, action, documentary, experimental and animation films by debut, emerging and established filmmakers.
With its eclectic programming, The FeFF serves to bridge the gap between the written visual and screen based media arts.

The FeFF hosts a robust Industry Initiative Program comprised of script readings, pitch sessions, panel discussions, and the annual directors round table. The FeFF Photo Exhibit takes place in partnership with WARC Gallery.

The Script Development Program is a two tier program involving the Script Reading Series and the Good To Go, an industry pitch session for writers with scripts that are good to go into production. This program is open to male writers as well as women with the provision that their script feature a female protagonist.

The FeFF selectively presents a few short films co-directed by a male /female team annually.





ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The FeFF was established in 2001 as a non-profit organization. The FeFF presents films directed by international women filmmakers from around the globe.

The Female Eye is a competitive festival and awards are presented for Best Films and Best Screenplays annually. Film awards include Best of Show, Best Debut Feature, Best Canadian Feature, Best Foreign Feature, Best Documentary, Best Short, Best Animation and Best Experimental. An HONOURARY DIRECTOR AWARD and BEST IN THE BIZ TRIBUTE recognizes one internationally recognized director annually along with the HONOURARY MAVERICK AWARD AND BEST IN THE BIZ TRIBUTE. ALL films submitted for competition qualify for Best of Show, Best Film and at the discretion of the jury films can qualify in more than one award category e.g. Best Short Film & Best Debut Director or Best Experimental Documentary, Best of Show...

FeFF awards are hand welded, engraved, one-of-a-kind statues created by Willie Anicic.
