MISSION & OBJECTIVE
Alliance of Women Filmmakers launched The Los Angeles Women's International Film Festival to provide resources and opportunities for women filmmakers to share their stories by providing them a forum to showcase their films in the heart of the entertainment industry.

In conjunction with the film festival AWF produces an annual filmmaker symposium with panels and workshops lead by entertainment lawyers and industry executives. Our 2013 seminars were sponsored by Women of Warner Bros. (WOW) panelists included Warner Bros. distribution executives and entertainment lawyers. Our 2014 Filmmaker Symposium will be hosted by Women of Warner Bros as well.


ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Los Angeles Women's International Film Festival has showcased hundreds of films made by women of diverse back grounds from all over the world. AWF has established a network of women filmmakers worldwide who share the same passion in creating opportunities and powerful screen images of women.
