8th March at 6.30 pm at Backlot, 65 Haig Street, Southbank.

International Women’s Day.

The She Shot International Women’s Micro Film Festival was created so that more women directors could be represented on screen. The numbers are clear – 50% of screen school graduates are women but only 15% later work in the industry, this means there is a need to redress the balance.  The film festival has attracted many submissions globally indicating that female directors would like a voice and a space to express their individual vision. 

We have seventeen films that have been selected from around the world, of various genres, and some student films have also been selected for the night.  The Best Film by a Female Director will receive an Australian Director’s Guild associate membership, and Triurban Media will award $250. 

We thought that it was important that we showcased these great films on International Women’s Day, which is March the 8th, at 6.30 pm at Backlot Studios, 65 Haig Street, Southbank.
