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!

Introducing the RAMPA Platform
The RAMPA Platform is an interactive, open and free contact directory giving information, contact details and location of the female professionals and audiovisual technicians (film/tv/advertising/gaming) who work in the whole Spanish territory. It is a necessary resource. It is useful and user friendly. It fosters the professional specialization of women and seeks to achieve a more equal structure in a very dispersed sector of activity. At the same time, it also strives to foster women’s inclusion in the labor market, in positions that are not typecast as “feminine” jobs, or at least, not only in service jobs and positions.
The activity of the RAMPA platform is promoted by the Film Festival “Made by Women” and receives financial help from the Spanish Ministry of Culture and Sports.
