Call for Film Submissions: Global Voices Film Festival

Global Voices Film Festival, presented by USNC - UN Women, seeks to empower women by showcasing films that spotlight the unique voices, stories and experiences of women. The festival, now in its second year, supports female producers, directors and writers, who are creating some of the most insightful and groundbreaking work in cinema.

The goal of the festival is to raise money and awareness for the work of UN Women with 100% of the profits going to fund UN Women initiatives for gender equality worldwide. We are emphasizing films by female producers, directors and/or writers, or protagonists. Films by non- female filmmakers, which specifically focus on women’s stories or experiences, will also be considered.
