SHINING A LIGHT ON WOMEN

WHERE LEADERS IN FASHION, ENTERTAINMENT & MEDIA SHARE THEIR INSIGHTS & DISCUSS THEIR IMPACT ON WOMEN 

A  Festival  &  Conference

 

Launched in 2013, the Women & Fashion FilmFest brings together members of the fashion, entertainment, and media industries. We’re not just a film festival, but also a conference to foster discussion on issues affecting women. We also seek to examine industry issues and to celebrate and support the professional and creative development of women and youth through our screenings and programs, and to honor leaders in these fields for outstanding artistic, societal and communal contributions. The Women & Fashion FilmFest is a partner of MARITAGE International, an United Nations driven independent non-profit initiative to empower women through the arts, and a partner of the United Nations Association Film Festival and United Nations Association Traveling Film Festival. (Click here to see a list of our current partner organizations.)

 

Education and outreach form a critical focus. In conjunction with faculty at The Fashion Institute of Technology, students have been developing short films as part of a course module. Students from FIT and other academic institutions are invited to submit their films. In 2014, we launched the first Girls Film Festival. In partnership with the Civic Life Project, Reel Works, Scenarios USA and other youth filmmaking non-profits, we screened a selection of films made by girls to help teach self-discovery and self-empowerment through filmmaking. 

 

The Women & Fashion FilmFest aims to serve as an ongoing global platform through our online forum and WEBFest as well as special film screenings. These aspects make the Women & Fashion FilmFest a unique and innovative platform in one of the world’s greatest fashion, entertainment and media capitals.
