We are an international festival featuring women directors, with a focus on international women's issues, stories and lives. Using the term international includes films by U.S. filmmakers with a preference toward films that focus on women's issues and stories.


The 2015 festival will be our 16th annual festival. Our typical audience is 150 to 200 people for each film. We prefer to have the filmmakers present to answer questions after the films. Our festival is a fundraiser sponsored by the Gulf Coast Chapter, US National Committee for UN Women, an arm of the United Nations. UN Women assists women in developing countries. All film personnel are volunteers. Net proceeds are donated to the USNC for advocacy programs and to support the work of UN Women worldwide.

In addition, for the sixth. year, we will be partnering with the Sarasota Film Festival and full length movies and documentaries shown during our Festival may also be shown at the Sarasota Film Festival.
