SFWFF 2011 Call For Entries Is Open!

The Women’s Film Institute announces its call for film and video entries in all lengths and genres for the 7th annual San Francisco International Women’s Film Festival (SFWFF). The festival will take place April 4-10, 2011.

“We’re open to professional and amateur filmmakers of narrative, documentary, music video, animation, and experimental works,” says festival founder Scarlett Shepard. “The only constant is that submissions must be directed or co–directed by women.”

SFWFF will be accepting online entries submitted via global filmmaker community (Deadline for submissions is December 1, 2010). Their internet-only submission platform uses one master entry form and is an economical, eco-friendly, and secure alternative to traditional hard-copy DVD submissions:

“The festival is a powerful and vital forum that brings the voices of women to a wider audience, as well as celebrating their achievements in the world of cinema,” notes Shepard.

Founded in 2004, the SFWFF celebrates the achievements of women working behind the camera and raises awareness about the need for more opportunities for female filmmakers:
