REVOLUTION FILM FEST A.C. is a non-profit organization that celebrates the entire scope of women’s creation within the film industry.

OBJECTIVE

To decrease the gender gap on and off the screen, encouraging the exhibition of films that bring to the culture and entertainment industries diverse and nuanced female characters, who speak for and about themselves.

MISSION

To empower women through cinematic experiences and to promote equity in both representation and labor in film, and by the same token offer tools for the creation of new audiences with greater critical capabilities.

VISION

To privilege women’s gaze, beginning with a revision and revalorization of the work by women directors, writers, actresses, producers, among others, who offer a diversity of stories about the modern world.

THE PROBLEM

Recent studies have shown the international film industry to be a place of great disparity, regarding both labor and representation.

Cinema has left a feminine point of view to the wayside in its content construction, and it doesn’t reflect women’s reality in terms of symbolic nor demographic representation, creating gender stereotypes in order to portray female characters.

When women in film are defined as objects, the possibility of them acting as subjects of their own story is nullified.

THE SOLUTION

To promote the exhibition of films written by, directed by women, and/or featuring female protagonists.

FEMME REVOLUTION FILM FEST

Serves as a platform for the convergence, dissemination, and discussion of critical thought regarding the actual state of film production. It presents a vision of the world from a contemporary feminine perspective via fiction, documentary and experimental visual narrative, among others.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO HAVE A FESTIVAL FOR WOMEN FILMMAKERS AND TO CENTER A FEMALE VISION OF CINEMA IN THE SAME PROJECT?

Opening a space to engage with a feminine gaze challengers and subverts the hegemonic discourse. By using our own language, we can transform the field of representations, and thus, women’s lived realities.
