  • About the event

    The Brooklyn Women's Film Festival (BWFF) is a female focused film festival. It is run by women, it is about women, it is for everyone.

    BWFF showcases work that contains one or more self-identifying females as key creatives and gives special preference to filmmakers that transcend the Bechdel Test and tackle stories through a feminine lens. Our films are fierce, edgy, and relevant.

    This event creates a collaborative community for women in indie film. It values the eye of female storytellers and creates opportunities for women to meet, network, showcase and celebrate their achievements in film making. 

    BWFF supports diverse voices and offers opportunities to female filmmakers by way of submission waiver programs and tailored feedback on their work. So far, we have offered more than 20 waiver programs to female filmmakers from all corners of the globe: Greece, Burkina Faso, Iran, Israel, Lebanon, France, India, Australia, just to name a few.

     

     

    Why should you sponsor?

    Sponsors would directly impact the success of the BWFF community, as their contribution would enable us to provide cash and in kind awards to our filmmakers, support our judging panel for their contribution to the BWFF community and provide further waivers and screening opportunities to champion female artists from all over the world.  Becoming a sponsor for BWFF would place you and/or your company in the stratosphere of cool, edgy, fierce, Brooklynites, and solidify your place on the right side of history, as a sponsor passionate about equipping women with the tools they need to tell their stories.

    Today, more than ever*, independent female-identifying artists need support and community to develop innovative new work and connect with each other. Brooklyn Women's Film Festival is committed to promoting the voice of independent storytellers to create female centric films and a space to celebrate them.

    *On the top 100 grossing films of 2016, women represented:

    • 4% of directors
    • 11% of writers
    • 3% of cinematographers
    • 19% of producers
    • 14% of editors
