The Artemis Women in Action Film Festival is the world’s only film festival focused exclusively on female action and empowerment heroes. Our 4th edition will occur in March 2018.

We celebrate powerful women taking action on the silver screen. From female action heroes and female film directors to female activists and the men who support them, we shine a spotlight on females in narrative and documentary films who are fearless, fierce and revolutionary. We believe that film has both the power to entertain and to awaken – to awaken people’s awareness of the dynamic and powerful roles of women in our society. We aim to kick ass and open minds.

In 2017, the festival honored Tom Cruise, Melissa McCarthy, Nichelle Nichols, Cynthia Rothrock, Gina Carano, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, and stunt performers Andy Armstrong, Jennifer Caputo, Tammie Baird and Luci Romberg. Many of them attended our red carpet gala. Our 2016 honoree Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, Spy, Ghostbusters) presented the 2017 edition. Most of them were in attendance.

Our filmmakers and honorees have gone on to wonderful achievements. Stuntwoman Maja Aro returned to the festival with her film Hoods, which won Best Short Drama. Director Howard J. Ford ("Never Let Go", winner of Best Director, Best Film, and Best Actress in 2016) will release Never Let Go on DVD this summer. 2016 Best Documentary winner, SMART directed by Justin Zimmerman, found distribution. 2016 Alum David Ennocenti will begin production in early 2018 on a feature.

The online blog Ms. In The Biz wrote several articles about the 2016 festival: http://msinthebiz.com/2016/05/03/warrior-women-artemis-women-in-action-film-festival/
http://msinthebiz.com/2016/05/02/unsung-heroines-get-a-voice-at-artemis/)

Artemis’ definition of "women in action" includes "women who take action"-- the activists, political leaders and everyday women who affect change in the world around them. In addition to films featuring a female lead or co-lead in a physically active role, submissions now include films where women are the agents of change in the world around.

We offer festival passes good for the entire weekend to filmmakers of all films selected to screen and all screenwriters selected as finalists. This pass includes admission to our red carpet gala which features female action stars and legends of the film industry, and access to all festival events, including our panels. Our 2017 edition included a stunt panel featuring our 2017 stunt honorees, panels on Warrior Women, Virtual Reality, and Film Finance, and a Q & A with the L.A. Sparks.

We present Artemis Awards for Audience Choice, Best Film, Best Director, Best Documentary, Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Fight Scene, Best Action Sequence, Best Screenplay, as well as others. The top three winners of the Screenplay Competition receive an InkTip Script Listing so that producers and reps can find you. Producers have made more than 315 films from scripts and writers they found through InkTip.

The festival takes place in the film capital of the world, Los Angeles, California.

Our event date(s) and our location are subject to change!

Critical Edge student-run film & art microfestivals feature a season of small film screenings where we play many of our short film selections alongside local/student filmmakers, followed by an annual Film Festival. A typical early screening event lasts an hour, and takes place at a local cafe, art gallery/studio space, or outdoors (depending on the venue). Our annual event will take place at multiple venues, run longer, and screen feature and short films - the annual event showcases the films selected as winners of their submission category (among other selections).

The World On Fire Film Festival was founded to provide promotional opportunities to filmmakers from all over the world. Utilizing our network with various podcasts, radio shows, and theaters we provide our top tier winners with much needed promotional support for their film.

The World On Fire Film Festival recognizes excellence in filmmaking in several categories with the World On Fire Film Awards. We award deserving films in the following categories: Narrative Feature Film, Documentary Feature Film, Narrative Short Film, Documentary Short Film, Directing, Editing, Acting, and Originality in Film.

Tired of spending money on film festivals that do nothing for you? Us too. Films are judged in two ways. Each film that is submitted will receive either a Bronze, Silver, or Gold award based upon how it is received by the judges. So everyone that submits gets something for their film. Beyond that we will award the top tier films for specific categories, and provide those winners with promotional opportunities.

Officially Selected Films will be given the opportunity to have their films screened at The Trylon Cinema in Minneapolis, MN. The top award winners will receive promotional help exposing their work to thousands from several podcasts and radio shows across the U.S. Awards will be announced via our official website, targeted email blast, social media, radio, and internet promotional channels. It is requested, though not required, that awards won be mentioned in the promotional materials of the films being awarded.

More than being an opportunity to see your film on the big screen, The World On Fire Film Festival is dedicated to helping create opportunities for truly independent filmmakers to promote their work.

Animation is a fantastic, creative medium capable of bringing a storyteller’s inner visual world to life and sharing it with audiences everywhere. As the capabilities of computer-generated imagery continue to increase, there are fewer and fewer limitations as to what can be created on the screen.

Anime means "animation" in Japanese. However, in English the word Anime is often used to describe the very distinct style of Japanese animation. In some ways, Anime can be used to explore the everyday lives and fears of young people more effectively than Western Animation.

Join us for the 3rd Annual Animation/Anime Short Fest and become part of a new tradition!
