IN ACTION FILM FESTIVAL
Santa Monica, CA - USA
April 21 to 23, 2017
In the Spotlight today is the 3rd Annual Artemis Women In Action Film Festival , an empowering event for female-driven films. The Festival's roots are dedicated to female driven action films, the people who pioneered and contributed to the success of the genre, and the undiscovered talent of the future. This year, Artemis has expanded its definition of 'Women in Action' to include women who take action - the activists, political leaders and everyday women who affect change in the world around them. Festival fans leave screenings inspired and their awareness awakened to the powerful roles women play in society and throughout the world.
Each year, The Artemis Film Festival honors the most talented women in the action film world and features many powerful films including India's Daughter, Fight Like A Girl, and Never Let Go. In 2016, Artemis presented an All-Star stunt panel that included some of the greatest stuntwomen working today: Zoe Bell, Jessie Graff, Heidi Moneymaker, Dayna Grant. Also honored in 2016 was writing/directing superstar Paul Feig (Ghostbusters, Bridesmaids, Spy, and The Heat ) for his work directing films showcasing women in powerful leading roles. The most recent festival also included a first-ever panel on Women Warriors that featured a legendary archaeologist, a mythology professor, a female WWII aviator and filmmakers focused on military women.
Filmmakers are invited to submit Feature or Short length films, Documentaries, and Animation. Screenwriters are welcome to submit Fiction Screenplays (100-140 pages in length) in any genre.
