Join us in 2018 for ATX's newest & most exciting film fest: featuring women filmmakers across the Texas landscape, transforming the way we view both films and their makers.

The first annual Transform Film Fest will be held at Motion Media Arts Center on February 10, 2018 at 7pm.

Submissions due no later than January 4, 2018 in the categories:


Submission fee $15.*

This film festival is organized & produced by three women-run organizations located in Austin, Texas.

Motion Media Arts Center is a 501c(3) non-profit independent film, art, and technology center that supports every aspect of production from creation to presentation. The goal is empower, support and educate emerging artists of all ages to be active participants in shaping our culture and engage communities to rethink the way we view film, art and technology. We provide alternative ways to work, learn, create, and consume the arts in the digital era. The programs include Austin School of Film and Austin Cinemaker Space.

HIVE Arts Collective is a group of women and non-binary folks who come together to learn new skills, meet other creatives, and collaborate on projects. We host art workshops and events that support the growth of women and non-binary artists in the Austin community.

Women’s Community Center of Central Texas: The mission of the Women’s Community Center of Central Texas is to promote the well being of Texas women and girls and to build positive connections among people and organizations that do the same. The WCC is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. The Transform Film Festival is part of the WCC Alt Girl Cinema programming.

1. Although we are flexible with times, 5-10 minutes is a sweet spot.

2. On the application, you will see there is a question about submitting an additional film, once we have entries in, we will follow up with those who have a second film they'd like to submit.

3. This festival is for women, so 18+

4. The festival is TEXAS women only. The filmmaker must currently live and work in TX. The film does not have to take place in TX or even filmed in TX but the filmmaker must currently be in TX.
