Films have power. They create conversation. They reveal truths. They inspire. But for far too long, Hollywood has told only half the story: what is missing are the stories of women as change agents and heroes in their own right. For the fourth year, Barnard College, the most sought-after women’s college in the nation, will celebrate women’s leadership both on and off-screen at the Athena Film Festival, scheduled to take place from February 6-9, 2014. The Festival aims to expand the definition of what it means to be a female leader, highlighting the many ways that women can and do make a difference. The weekend program exhibits a wide range of cinema including Academy Award-nominated films, top tier features, documentaries, and shorts. The Festival’s audiences are invited to engage in conversations with directors, writers, and producers that challenge convention and examine leadership with a new lens. Submissions are now open for the Athena Film Festival. They will be accepted until September 15. We are looking for documentaries, features and shorts that: * Reveal the diverse narratives of women leaders from all walks of life—narratives of ambition, courage, strength and resilience. * Showcase women leaders who help us interpret the reality of the modern world—captivating stories of truth, determination, innovation and vision. * Highlight the talents of emerging artists — capturing a new generation’s take on what truly makes exemplary women leaders. Important Information To Keep in Mind: * All films must feature a female in a leadership position at the center of the story. * Films may be directed by a person or people of any gender. ***** Films that are directed by women but do not focus on female leadership will not be considered.* **** If you are interested in submitting your film to the Athena Film Festival, please submit the following information to athenafilmfestival@ gmail.com * A brief synopsis of the film and any relevant links (especially trailers) * Type of film: documentary, feature, or short. * Running time, country of origin and language of film. * Year the film was made. * Type and date of release (if applicable) * Names of film festivals or other venues your film has been shown (if applicable) * Contact information: Name, email, address, phone number and Skype. * Rights Holder Information: Name, email, address, phone number and Skype.
