2020 Activities

In this 3rd edition, the Film Festival Made by Women comes back with plenty of training activities where we will expand the audiovisual knowledge of our audience in 3 roundtables and 2 lectures, along with debates, discussions and presentations related to the movie industry.

With this goal in mind, the Film Festival Made by Women will bring a fairly large number of professional women to Madrid in the month of April. In this edition we will pay special attention to cinematography and animation. We will also welcome the visit of relevant international female professionals, festival directors, producers, feature-film directors, actresses, programmers, and more.

For 12 days, you will have the unique opportunity to learn directly from all of these women filmmakers. Besides, all the training activities at the Festival are free of charge. Check out our program and… DON’T MISS IT!
