Flicks4Chicks Film Contest Takes Off With 50 Teams Shooting

The Flicks4Chicks contest was launched for sign-ups on February 14th and the festival organizers honestly had no idea what to expect when they made an international call to filmmakers.  Would women filmmakers be inspired to make a short in one month or would that seem too daunting?  Since men dominate the industry, how might they feel about a contest requiring that women hold lead roles of creative authority?  Finally, how would people who generally have their own artistic visions respond to being given a choice of “situations” on which to build their stories?  It turns out that, with a few exceptions, we received an overwhelmingly positive response.  Well over fifty teams signed up and on the cut-off date of March 31st there were others who had learned of the contest too late, still hoping to participate.

On April 1st the Flicks4Chicks film teams received their narrative situations and were given 5 days to make a final decision on which one they wanted to develop.  Now, the international film contest is off to a roaring start with 50 crews from across the US and the world busily working on their projects.

Situations range from “a Muslim woman with a love of technology joins a “geek” sorority at college but still finds her values in collision with the young women around her” to “a female police officer who has been experiencing sexual discrimination is asked to assist in an intense hostage situation where things have spiraled out of control.”

Who might do the best job of exploring diversity or moving beyond the Bechdel test?  We could hardly wait to see, so we asked our teams to send us production stills once they began shooting.  With a deadline of May 1st, it’s a race to the finish.   Here are just a few of the highlights.  If they inspire you, save the dates of June 29th and 30th to attend our Different Faces Different Voices Festival screenings at the Brattle Theater in Cambridge, MA.
