The Athena Film Festival, a celebration of women and leadership, is a joint project of Barnard’s Athena Center for Leadership and Women and Hollywood.

The 11th annual festival will be held virtually in March 2021. For one month, we will be curating a series of programming that includes feature, documentary, and short film screenings, panel conversations, q&a sessions with creatives, and events focused on celebrating and amplifying the stories of bold, courageous women leaders.

Athena films and conversations will focus on politically, culturally, and socially relevant themes that are currently facing our global community, and will showcase the women leaders who are championing efforts to build a better world.

For one month, we will curate a space for our community to share, connect, learn, and reimagine a world with women leaders at the forefront. We hope you will join us.
