About the Festival

The Los Angeles Women's International Film festival (#LAWOMESFEST) first burst on the scene in 2005 and was hailed as “A must attend event for all women in the entertainment industry” (Backstage). The festival is produced by Alliance of Women Filmmakers, a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and equality of women in entertainment. It serves as a platform for women filmmakers worldwide to share their unique stories with Los Angeles' diverse audience. The festival has been covered by prominent media outlets and has been helmed “the festival that fights back” (Ms. Magazine). 2019 marked the festival’s 16th year and featured films made by women from around the world including; Austria, Italy, India and Japan to name a few.

AWF has established a worldwide network of women filmmakers and studio executives who share the same passion for creating opportunities as well as powerful screen images of women. Join us in 2021 to connect with visionary indie filmmakers, see great films and celebrate the achievements of women filmmakers from around the world.

This festival is supported, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
