Athena Film Festival

For 14 years, the Athena Center for Leadership at Barnard College and Women and Hollywood have partnered to challenge tired, troubling narratives about women and leadership with original, thought-provoking, compelling, and diverse women-centered stories.

Today, the Athena Film Festival is where thousands of people gather annually to experience these stories, together — and the Athena Creative Development Program is where the creatives working on these stories find champions, community, and support year-round.

Our founding sponsor is the Artemis Rising Foundation and its CEO, Regina K. Scully.

The 2024 Athena Film Festival will take place February 29 - March 3, 2024
