WOMEN & FASHION FILMFEST & SHE WEBFEST

Launched in 2013, the Women & Fashion FilmFest brings together members of the fashion, entertainment, and media industries to foster social responsibility and to create new opportunities for women and diverse artists. The Women & Fashion FilmFest is endorsed by UNESCO's International Council for Film, Television & Audiovisual Communication for its artistic and socially minded programming. Its partner include the United Nations Association Film Festival, Global Fashion 4 Development and MARITAGE International, an United Nations driven independent non-profit initiative to empower women through the arts.

Education and outreach form a critical focus. In conjunction with faculty at The Fashion Institute of Technology, students have been developing short films as part of a course module. Students from FIT and other academic institutions are invited to submit their films. In 2014, we launched the first Girls Film Festival. In partnership with the Civic Life Project, Reel Works, Scenarios USA and other youth filmmaking non-profits, we screened a selection of films made by girls to help teach self-discovery and self-empowerment through filmmaking. 

The Women & Fashion FilmFest aims to serve as an ongoing global platform through our online forum and WEBFest as well as special film screenings. These aspects make the Women & Fashion FilmFest a unique and innovative platform in one of the world’s greatest fashion, entertainment and media capitals.
