The CoSM Women’s Visionary Film Symposium was founded to honor and empower female filmmakers and fans. Our mission is to create a new forum for visionary creators, so that their works—with the power to heal, transform and transcend—may reach wider audiences, and make the impact they were destined for.
WVFS is a four-day showcase of new and established female artists making an impact in filmmaking worldwide. From groundbreaking industry panels to workshops, premiers of feature-length films to shorts, we will explore what it means to be a woman today through powerful and thought-provoking discussions and works of art. The Symposium will focus on our collective wisdom, our families, communities, and our future.
