The Women & Fashion FilmFest (WFF) is a festival and conference gathering leaders in fashion, entertainment and media to foster social responsibility and create opportunities for emerging artists, particularly women and under-represented groups. Its partners include the United Nations Association Film Festival and Maritage International, a non-profit driven by UN leaders focusing on empowering women through the arts. WFF is recognized as a Full Member of the International Council for Film, Television and Audiovisual Communication (ICFT) of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). a film festival, but also a conference to foster discussion on issues affecting women. We also seek to examine industry issues, to nurture social responsibility, to support the creative development of women and youth through our screenings and programs, and to honor leaders in these fields for outstanding artistic, societal and communal contributions.
