About the opportunity

Submissions are now open for the 2023 Melbourne Women in Film Festival!

The Melbourne Women in Film Festival is a regional not-for-profit festival aimed at celebrating, supporting, and promoting the work of Australian, Aotearoa New Zealand and Pasifika women and gender-diverse filmmakers and creatives.

Our annual festival encourages and inspires others with creative aspirations to pursue their passions with confidence. We are best known for our retrospective screenings, Q&As with filmmakers and creative personnel, diverse short film sessions, engaging panels, public forums, networking events, and practical workshops.

If you have a short film or web series (fiction and nonfiction) in any style or genre, MWFF want to see it! Head to the MWFF Film Freeway page (through the ‘Register’ button) for further details.

You can find more information about the festival here: Welcome to MWFF 2022

FEE WAIVERS are available for First Nations, Pasifika, Disabled, and transgender filmmakers – contact Anna at for more information.

The submission deadline is in August, but can be flexible if filmmakers need more time.
