About the Festival

Celebrating the cinematic achievements of women from the around the world, The Los Angeles Women's International Film festival presented by Alliance of Women Filmmakers takes place March 23-26 at LA Live Regal Cinemas.
Now in its 13th year, the festival serves as a platform for women filmmakers worldwide to share their unique stories and cultural experiences with Los Angeles' diverse audience. The festival's programming also reflects Alliance of Women Filmmakers' mission to educate and inform audiences of social, political, and health issues impacting women globally.

Each year, Alliance of Women Filmmakers partners with a charitable organization that serves women. For 2017 AWF has partnered with WriteGirl a Los Angeles-based creative writing and mentoring organization that spotlights the power of a girl and her pen.
