On April 22nd, 2017, the Women in Comedy Festival’s (WICF) 2nd Annual Film Festival will be held at the historic Brattle Theater in Harvard Square. WICF’s Film Festival will be part of the larger annual Women in Comedy Festival, which will run from Wednesday, April 19th through Sunday, April 23rd in Boston and Cambridge, MA.
WICF’s Film Festival was designed to promote and celebrate women in the film industry. WICF’s mission is to pave the way for more unconventional female characters and storylines to be written, directed and produced by women. The WICF Film Festival will feature original comedic content created by filmmakers from all over the world. All genders are welcome to submit. For films to qualify, the protagonist of the film must be a woman, and a woman must hold AT LEAST ONE of the following roles: Producer, Director, or Writer.
Now in its 8th year, WICF remains firmly committed to helping close the gender gap in comedy by showcasing women and their allies across comedic platforms. In addition to the film component, Women in Comedy Festival will also include acclaimed stand-up comedians, improv and sketch groups, musical comedy groups and solo artists, and storytellers.
WICF encourages women and their allies to apply today. Submissions are open until February 13th, 2017. Filmmakers can apply at wicf.com and through filmfreeway.com.
