Athena Film Festival Accepting Submissions

(released 6/16/2024)

The 15th anniversary Athena Film Festival will take place March 6-9, 2025. Submit your film or apply to be involved as a programming fellow at the festival.

The Athena Film Festival is now open for Short Film submissions. Short film submissions are open from June 3, 2024 to August 15, 2024. The 2025 15th anniversary festival will showcase stories of women's leadership. The festival is looking for challenging and original stories to share with the audience. If this sounds like your film, then they want to see it.

There is a $15 USD fee to submit. No writer will ever be turned away due to a lack of funds. To request a waiver for the submission fee, email and explain your circumstances.

For more information on guidelines and to submit, visit the FilmFreeway page.

If you have an interest in being involved from the other side of submission, consider applying to the 2024-2025 Athena Film Festival Programming Fellowship. Apply by June 15 for this opportunity to get hands-on experience with reviewing, programming, and hosting films at a festival. Barnard students and alumni are encouraged to apply. Check out the website for more info and to apply.
