The second annual Auntyland Film Festival is seeking film submissions now through January 2023. A Women's History Month tradition, this hybrid festival will offer both digital and in-person film screenings on March 8, International Women's Day, and through the end of March 2023.
"We're back by popular demand for a second year,” said festival director Sylvia Wong Lewis. “The maiden voyage success during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, award-winning films, plus a summer film fest that featured a student-curated program, proved that Auntyland carved a unique place in the film community. We're ready to promote and support more independent, short films that intersect with diverse cultures, communities, comedy, romance, experimental, politics, features, and more."
“Women and Black, Indigenous, and People of Color make up the majority of the world population. But our stories rarely take center stage. We hope to change that. ALFF is the only festival that centers on talented elders, especially mature women actors, writers, directors, and producers. Aunties are Queens who bring realness to our lives. We welcome your bold real stories to the festival.”
The deadline for submissions is January 27, 2023. Submit your films here https://filmfreeway.com/AuntylandFilmFest.
