It's women ... It's animation ... It's Womanimation!

What is Womanimation? As the name implies, it's a festival showcasing acclaimed animated films created by women from around the world.

From satire to drama, from the everyday to the surreal - in styles from traditional 2-d to stop-motion to computer animation - the festival features something for every taste.

Film Submissions

We are now accepting submissions for the festival!

The deadline for submissions is June 1st, 2015.

There is no fee to submit a film for consideration.

Films must be animated, directed by a woman, and narrative in structure (no music videos, trailers, non-narrative experimental pieces, etc.)

For 2015, we prefer films completed in 2014 or 2015. Films completed in 2013 may also be considered. Earlier films are ineligible.

Filmmakers accepted into the festival are strongly encouraged to provide film stills and a photo of the director.

How to Submit

First, click here to fill out a form.

Then click here to send us your film with Hightail. You can also use your own FTP service such as WeTransfer, DropBox, etc.

For submission format, we prefer 1080p H.264 (any frame rate).

We can also accept uncompressed or less-compressed formats such as Apple ProRes if your FTP accepts the larger files.
