THE FUTURE OF FILM IS FEMALE
Production, exhibition, and promotion of women-directed films.
Frequently the road to a long career in film starts with a short. That’s why with us - buy a shirt, support a short film! All proceeds from your purchase of THE FUTURE OF FILM IS FEMALE products go to female filmmakers with a short film in any stage of production. We aim to award grants quarterly in the amount ranging form $500 - $1000. We also partner with organizations, like Heard City, to offer post-production grants. To date, we've given funds to thirteen filmmakers! Interested in submitting, click here!
At Future of Film is Female, we believe that exhibition and audience relationships are essential towards gender equality behind the camera. We present an ongoing screening program featuring contemporary feature and short film directed by women with our partner, the Museum of Modern Art, working with filmmakers like Shirin Neshat, Josephine Decker, Nia DaCosta, Catherine Fordham, and A.V. Rockwell along with short-form film organizations like NoBudge and The Eyeslicer. Check out the first two editions: THE FUTURE OF FILM IS FEMALE, PART 1 (July 2018) and THE FUTURE OF FILM IS FEMALE, PART 2 (February 2019). Next screening is in April 2020.
We also regularly host screenings at Nitehawk Cinema (Brooklyn, NY) and Rooftop Films.
The Future of Film is Female is creating a family. We're committed to creating connective experiences with women in the film industry though mixers, screenings, and talks. Online, we promote the projects by all women-identifying members of the film community via our social media network.
