Artemis Rising Foundation Supports:
Athena Film Festival
The Athena Film Festival is an annual film festival held at Columbia University’s Barnard College in New York City. The festival takes place in February and focuses on films celebrating women and leadership. In addition to showing films, the festival hosts filmmaker workshops, master classes and panels on a variety of topics relevant to women in the film industry.
“The Athena Film Festival was the first to highlight women storytellers directing, screenwriting, producing and writing and it was the first of its kind to boost female-focused stories with female protagonists and female leads. And of course, the festival’s named after the goddess Athena, we’re named after the goddess Artemis, so there’s real synergy.” RKS
