About the Festival

Los Angeles Women's International Film Festival is produced by Alliance of Women Filmmakers (AWF). AWF is a non-profit 501c(3) organization established to empower women filmmakers to create diverse roles for women.

Now in its 11th year the Los Angeles Women's International Film Festival serves as a platform for women filmmakers worldwide to share their unique stories and cultural experiences with Los Angeles' diverse audience. The festival's programming also reflects Alliance of Women Filmmakers' mission to educate and inform audiences of social, political, and health issues impacting women globally.

Each year, Alliance of Women Filmmakers partners with an organization that serves women to help generate awareness and raise money in support of women's causes. For 2015 AWF has partnered with Dress For Success Worldwide-West. A clothing drive will be held throughout the festival.
