Female Filmmaker Retreat will be in Oxford, MS


Moderated discussions will cover topics related to funding, distribution, festival strategy, and sound editing. In addition to attending screenings, workshops and panels, attendees will have time to socialize and enjoy the natural surroundings before the Oxford Film Festival kicks off. Female Filmmaker Retreat is an opportunity for female-identifying filmmakers who have at least one previous feature under their belt or several short films and with a current work in progress film to gather with

total raised
monthly donors


Female filmmakers are at only 20% of all above the line positions in the film industry in 2018 but the number drops radically for women of color. Women in rural areas such as Mississippi have even less chance.


The female filmmaker retreat will remove the expense to get support from industry insiders and to complete a second film. Many women only get one chance to direct in this industry and then lose support. We want to pick up where this leaves off.

Long-Term Impact

We want to continue growing this retreat and support for female filmmakers with the plan to follow the participants long-term to watch their careers and as they blossom bring them back as mentors to continue growing this support network.
