The Hollywood Women's Film Institute, a 501[c]3 charitable organization, is designed to support, educate, inspire and create opportunities for women in film, Television, music and media. We are the women of New Hollywood. 


The Hollywood Women’s Film institute is a non-profit feminist organization  with a global lens, that exists to empower women, facilitate programs and build platforms for women filmmakers, writers, directors, producers, journalists and musicians from around the world. We believe that as artists, we are the storytellers of our times. Through both the narrative and documentary genres we reflect the times in which we live. Our Global Sisters Program is focused on bringing together women filmmakers from around the world to share their creative visions and ideas.


 Together with our sponsors and celebrity supporters, our mission includes helping women to create, distribute, screen and promote their works in various formats and to provide educational workshops, to assist them in their artistic goals. Our panels and workshops are designed to educate and inform woman in film financing, distribution, writing, directing, composing and producing. Additional panels and workshops offer a framework for ideas to help support women and students in navigating within the industry, fighting sexism, racism and homophobia, in order to balance the scales of power and opportunity. 

  

The mission of the Hollywood Women’s Film Festival is to provide affordable, quality, film festival programs to empower women filmmakers from all over the world, in all aspects of motion pictures, Television and media. Through our screenings, educational panels, festival events and guest speaker programs we will help our filmmakers broaden their scope of knowledge, visibility and opportunity.  Our focus is to provide a forum for women from all countries to come to Los Angeles tell their stories, and show their films to the public and industry professionals. Our goal toward change is to engage both men and women in raising awareness through working together and participating in filmmaking, panel discussions and workshops to balance the power scales and end gender and racial inequity. Talent, dedication, focus, hard work and opportunity are the keys to creative success. Our festival provides the platforms to launch creative visions.

Our Festival

Our Festival Celebrates Women in Film, Television and Media. We honor the  game changers and we honor diversity. The intersectionality of our society must be represented in film.


The festival will run five days every year starting June 2019. Our panels and workshops are designed to facilitate changes in our industry and empower women. The screenings will allow filmmakers to share their vision and introduce their work to audiences. Our celebrity guest speakers will join some of the panels and the pre-festival party and after party will offer a place to meet fellow artists and lovers of cinema.
