Australian Womens Film Festival 2023
The Australian Womens Film Festival (AWFF) is a short film festival created by women, for women.
AWFF will be held at Event Cinemas, George Street, Sydney on Tuesday 21 November 2023 from 5pm.
AWFF aims to support, encourage + celebrate female identifying storytellers by giving them a platform to showcase their talent both in front + behind the camera.
All AWFF films must have female identifying creatives in at least 3 key roles (e.g.Writer, Director, Producer, Animator, DOP, Composer and Editor). This is designed to encourage the inclusion of women in the industry. Men are not excluded from entering AWFF, but they must be willing to work with women. All fictional films must pass the Bechdel test - a measure of the representation of women in fiction. The Bechdel test asks if the work features at least two women that talk to each about a topic other than a man and was included to encourage filmmakers to consider their portrayal of women in film in order to transcend traditional character tropes.
The AWFF program includes:
- a red carpet welcome event with cocktails provided by our sponsor The Glenlivet
- a curated panel discussion moderated by Variety Australia Editor In Chief Poppy Reid) with the AWFF judging panel (Teresa Palmer, Nakkiah Lui, Edwina Waddy and Grainne Brunsdon)
- a screening of the finalist films and award presentation
Tickets include entry to AWFF, a gift bag, popcorn, bottled water & cocktails!
