NMWA’s Festival of Film and Media Arts

September 25-30, 2007

For the past 20 years, the National Museum of Women in the Arts has been dedicated to celebrating the highest creative achievements of women. In commemoration of this history and to highlight exceptional and exciting new film and media works by women, we are thrilled to launch our first film festival! Over the course of five days, the NMWA 20th Anniversary Festival of Film and Media Arts will highlight the talents of outstanding contemporary filmmakers who are creating works that are both artistically innovative and socially relevant. The programs will focus on new works by prominent, established filmmakers, as well as cutting-edge works by unknown, emerging filmmakers and media artists who are exploiting the medium in provocative ways. The NMWA 20th Anniversary Festival of Film and Media Arts will encompass film, video, media performance, and installations of all lengths and genres from around the world. In addition the festival will feature a sidebar of youth programs, as well as a program of local directors, along with other niche programs. We will bring together hundreds of filmmakers, programmers, curators, distributors, artists, scholars, activists, and film enthusiasts in a visual celebration of women’s stories that includes screenings, discussions, panels, installations, and receptions.
