The 12th annual Archer Film Festival will take place at 6:15 p.m. at the WGA Theater in Los Angeles, CA.
Our Mission

The Archer Film Festival is dedicated to empowering female filmmakers and others who are often overlooked in the industry. Our goal is to advance the artform by showcasing work from high school students whose perspectives are rarely seen or heard. As a result, submissions from underrepresented voices are encouraged.


"Gender equality has been slow in coming but there has definitely been progress. It is now up to women in leadership positions to bring more women along."

- Eight-time Academy Award ® nominated producer Kathleen Kennedy


Archer hosted its 8th annual Archer Film Festival, empowering female filmmakers and featuring Marvel Studios Executive Vice President of Production Victoria Alonso as the keynote speaker. Festival organizers received over 700 student-produced film submissions from 57 countries.
