Experiencing the magic of Hollywood is reaching back and feeling her history in your bones. The art and artists of cinema created a world of its own. The majesty of her Golden Era can be felt in her historic studios, theatres, streets, hotels and old celebrity haunts. Hollywood is not only the home of cinema but we are a culture. Inspired by artistic vision we are the town of dreamers and risk takers. We have our own history and created a universal language from our culture, the language of cinema. It is this language that transcends borders. We are the women of New Hollywood, guided by the light of our sister cinema pioneers. The Hollywood Women's Film Festival invites women filmmakers from all over the world to join us. - JRN
