About Women's Weekend Film Challenge

Women's Weekend Film Challenge (WWFC) works for gender equity by creating opportunities for women to bring their leadership, talents, and stories to the forefront of the film industry. WWFC places professional filmmakers on crews to write, shoot and edit a short film in one weekend and provides top-of-the-line equipment, insurance and workshops. This career-building opportunity is free for participants.

Since its first challenge in January 2018, WWFC has worked with over 700 women to produce 30 short films, which have been accepted to more than 80 festivals. This grassroots, bi-coastal movement combats the gender imbalance of the film industry by providing an intensive networking experience and telling women's stories on screen.

As a response to COVID-19, Women's Weekend Film Challenge launched a virtual workshop series to bring career development and networking opportunities to filmmakers around the world. Workshop guests have included Alma Har'el, Kasi Lemmons, Karyn Kusama, Catherine Hardwicke, Stella Meghie, Elle Johnson, Mimi Leder and many more.

***Please note that unlike donations made through our website, Patreon contributions are not tax-deductible. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation, please visit womensweekendfilmchallenge.com/donate.***
