Submit your film: Contact: [email protected] The 2016 Women’s Voices Now Online Film Festival aims to portray diverse and underreported stories of (self-identified) women and men supporting women. Subjects broached in this festival include women in politics, social and legal change/justice, political rebellion, women’s rights struggles, activism, women living with a disability, health and family, environmental issues, women and employment, the resilience of women in the face of oppression, women and the arts, expression and experimentation of women, and socio-cultural relations between women and men. Women’s Voices Now (WVN) hopes that these films inspire viewers to join in solidarity in the fight against injustices in the world, among our nations and within families, and to recognize the full potential of women, and to create greater dignity for all. Women’s Voices Now seeks to amplify the voices of all women. We believe in the power of free expression to realize the aspirations of women’s rights. At WVN, we look for compelling films in the documentary, narrative, and experimental genres that push boundaries and subvert expectations. We are looking for films that are relevant to our global community and which tell unique stories and amplify voices of women from around the world. We judge all film submissions based on relevance of subject matter to our film festival call, strength of a film’s storytelling (use of structure and image to communicate a compelling story) and the technical aspects of filmmaking. All films in any language other than English are encouraged to submit; however, those films must include English language subtitles. There is a $20 submission fee for all films.
