Call for Submissions

WAM!Boston is seeking submissions in all genres for a film festival centered on films by and about women. All subjects are welcome — drama, comedy, documentary, experimental, short and feature length alike. The sky’s the limit!

We only ask that your submission meet the following criteria:

1. The film must be directed and/or produced by a female-identified filmmaker.

2. The story/topic of the film should feature women, or be about an issue of concern to women.

3. The film was released in 2013 or later (in order to highlight current films), with preference given to films that are released in 2015 or going to be released in 2016.

The deadline for entries is Friday November 6th, 2015. When considering entries, please keep in mind that bonus points will be given to those who are able to attend and/or send someone key to the film to attend. That said, we are excited to receive all submissions and look forward to sharing in the creative work of as many projects as we can!

Please note that we cannot reimburse travel expenses, nor can we pay filmmakers outright to screen their films. What we can do is ensure that, should there be proceeds leftover after the festival expenses are paid, those funds will be distributed among the filmmakers.

Submit Your Film

The deadline for submissions is Friday November 6th, 2015. If your film is selected, you will be notified in January 2016.. There is no entry fee, and you can submit one of two ways:

1. Online (Preferred)

Please fill out this form including a link to your film on Youtube, Vimeo, or a video host site of your choice. If necessary please provide login credentials. Please ensure that the login information will be valid through January to ensure adequate time for review.

2. By Mail
