It's time to screen and celebrate the 7 short films made during the third Women's Weekend Film Challenge!
The Women's Weekend Film Challenge places professional filmmakers on crews to write, shoot and edit a short film in one weekend. Over 200 women were placed on 7 crews for this most recent challenge. On the evening of April 4, the crews received a genre and a required object that they had to use. The assigned writers got to work, developing a script overnight. Filming began just a few hours later. All the films were then edited, mixed and scored by a composer and submitted before midnight of April 7. The films you are about to watch are a testament to the passion, determination, and talent of hundreds of women working together. You will laugh, you will cry, but most importantly, you will be amazed!
