We would like to give a HUGE thanks to our team of staff, Board of Directors and Advisory Board Members, volunteers, sponsors, and donors who deserve our deepest thanks. Our second annual festival of films directed by women from around the world was a incredible success thanks to their hard work and donations. We couldn’t have done it without them and we are so excited to continue the momentum toward our mission to promote women directors and Bellingham as a filmmaking and film-viewing destination!

A very big thank you is also due to the many supporters who donated to the festival. Every little bit has helped us move closer to our mission and we are so very grateful.
We’re looking forward to additional educational events and film screenings later this year. We hope you’ll join us and continue to support women’s voices through film.
