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 by Diana Means to empower women filmmakers to create diverse roles for women.

Now in its 10th 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 AWF partners with an organization to help generate awareness and raise money to support women's causes. For 2014 AWF donated $1 of each festival ticket sold to American Heart Association's “Go Red for Women Campaign.”
