DEADLINE for the AXWFF's 4th SEASON - going up in 2015 is NOV 11, 2014 FEE: $10 (for up to 3 submissions)


AXW has promoted and screened experimental shorts since 2010 in Manhattan NY. Many of these films feature underrepresented themes and issues distinct to women and girls, are usually made by women and, sometimes, men.

Six screenings per year are presented thru NEW FILMMAKERS NY at ANTHOLOGY FILM ARCHIVES. All program notes remain on our web-site.

We recommend submitting shorter works of around 10 minutes and under, as these are easier to include. Narrative dramas, and conventional documentaries are unlikely to be included, unless they are exceptionally original/experimental in form and/or content.


AXW/online is a streaming site of short shows, that pays the filmmakers for their work, and serves to archive women's films that seerve as a record of their thoughts, expressions, and film-craft.

New York International Short Film Festival (NY Shorts Fest)

The NY Shorts Fest provides a showcase for the best short-form cinema and its creators in the world. Created by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences accredited Los Angeles International Short Film Festival.

We feel that short form cinema and its creators should have their own premiere film festival in New York deserving similar recognition given to the feature film and its creators.

The 3rd NY Shorts Fest will be held in May 2014.
