Read a terrific review of the festival in Motif Magazine here.

2017 was the ninth edition of the festival, exhibiting twelve short films with a total run time of about 85 minutes.

Filmmakers hailed from ten countries throughout Europe and Asia, and nine of the films made their US premiere, including one international premiere.

DJ Madame B weaved soundscapes created by women across the globe before and after screenings, with a reception after the final screening, with contributions from John Santos and Mumma's Real Lemonade.


The 2017 Audience Award winner is Catherine, directed by Britt Raes from Belgium, a tale of the making of a cat lady whose charges don't stick around for long.

WireLess, by Hungarian womanimator Szandra Pataki, won the Visual Vanguard award for visual innovation in storytelling.

The enigmatic tale of the interactions of creatures made entirely of a continuous wire impressed audiences (coming in 2nd place) and judges alike.

Award winners will be receiving custom awards created by last year's Womanimation! award winners.
