NEWARK, NJ - Women In Media – Newark (WIM-N) has launched its Call for Entries for Of the Spirit, WIM-N’s second annual Women’s History Month film festival, being held March 3 and 5, 2011 at Rutgers University, Newark campus. The film festival seeks to provide the community with independent films that illustrate the spirit, faith and fortitude of women globally. All films must be about women, and should be directed or co-directed by a woman.
Working in conjunction with Rutgers University’s Program of Women and Gender Studies symposium on religion, WIM-N wants attendees to see films where women use spirituality as their guiding force as they navigate the nuances of life. This year WIM-N is looking for at least three dynamic films in two categories: drama short (20 to 45 minutes) and documentary short (20 to 55 minutes).
Deadlines for submitting a film for consideration are October 5, 2010 (Early bird), November 10, 2010 (Regular), and November 27 2010 (Late). Entry fees vary based on entry date and category.
Women In Media-Newark (WIM-N) is an organization representing women who are passionate about film and new media. The organization was founded to advocate for women in the film, video and new media industries and to celebrate their accomplishments; as well as to educate the public, including our youth, about women’s issues. The production of the film festival is the galvanizing organizational event.
