A celebration of films from across the globe that tell the stories of fierce and fearless women leaders, the Athena Film Festival, now in its 13th year, will take place March 2-5 at Barnard College. If you’ve completed a short film about women leaders and would like to have it considered for the fest’s curated program, click here.
The Athena List is an annual script competition that selects exceptional scripts with women leaders at the heart of their stories. As the central program in the Athena Film Festival’s Creative Development program, The Athena List’s goal is to raise the profile of the scripts and the writers within the industry, with the purpose of getting these movies made and elevating their careers to the next level. If you’ve developed a script about women leaders that has already gone through a lab or workshop and would like it to be considered for The Athena List, click here.
Melissa Silverstein, Women and Hollywood’s Founder and Publisher, is Co-Founder and Artistic Director of the Athena Film Festival.
