Atlanta Women’s Film Festival (AWFF) welcomes films made by women, or films highlighting women through story and performance.

Screenplays

AWFF is looking to elevate the voices of women both from a writer’s standpoint and from a character standpoint. If your script is written by a female writer, or contains strong and prominent female characters, consider submitting to Atlanta Women’s Film Festival screenplay competition.
