A celebration of action films and the women who kick ass in them.
Artemis Motion Pictures announces the first ever film festival dedicated to honoring female driven action films, the men and women who pioneered them, those who contributed to the success of the genre, and the undiscovered talent of the future.
Artemis Motion Pictures Film Festival wants YOUR films and shorts. We are interested in all narrative, animated, and documentary films meeting the criteria below.
All submissions must feature women either starring or co-starring as a physical action character. Look, we’re not concerned whether or not a man or woman writes, directs, or produces these projects. We just want to celebrate women in kick ass roles.
Films – 40 minutes or longer.
Shorts – up to 40 minutes.
For narrative films, any genre that features action. For example Terminator 2: Sci-Fi/Action; Aliens: Horror/Action; and The Heat: Comedy/Action.
Animated films, any film that features action. For example Frozen, Brave, Tangled,and The Croods.
Documentary films are open to any stories about women in the armed forces, public service (police force, fire fighters, paramedics, etc.), pro and non-pro sports, basically any story that celebrates women in action or depicts heroic acts.
We will present Artemis Awards for Audience Choice, Best Film, Best Director, Best Documentary, Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Fight Scene, Best Action Sequence, as well as others.
