Women Sports Film Festival – Oakland

July 28, 2016 - July 30, 2016

At the Women Sports Film Festival we talk about what women’s sports is. Compelling. Transformative. Global. Using the power of documentary film we celebrate female athletes and the filmmakers who bring their stories to the screen. From legendary champions to girls on the local playing field, we promote films and conversations that explore how sport shapes the lives of women and girls around the world.

Steeped in respect for the women and men who blazed the trail, we are decidedly forward facing. The conversation around equity in both women’s sports and filmmaking is reaching a feverish pitch and the mission of this festival is to create progress on both fronts. Intentionally scheduled for the weekend before the opening ceremonies of the Summer Olympics, when awareness of women’s sports is at an all time high, this inaugural festival is a forum for community conversation about these important issues.

There are many options for watching films today, but nothing compares to the live, shared experience of seeing a movie in a theater with others and talking about it afterwards. We invite you to join us.
