Starz and WrapWomen are seeking short documentaries by female filmmakers telling female stories.
The ‘Telling Our Stories’ film competition is for short documentaries highlighting themes relevant to womanhood, created by female and female-identifying filmmakers. These shorts, or treatments for works-in-progress films, will be evaluated by industry professionals, competing for one of six finalist spots.
The short films of the six finalists will receive distribution on Starz, recognition at the Power Women Summit with an audience of over 2,000 women, and the chance to compete for the winning prize of $10,000.
- Submissions can be short documentary with a maximum running time of 7 minutes, or in the case of works-in-progress, a one-page treatment.
- Submissions may have previously played film festivals as long as they premiered after January 2017.
- Submissions are ineligible if they screened on US network or cable television, or distributed to theaters.
