The 13th annual Archer Film Festival will take place 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


The Archer School for Girls presented its twelfth annual Archer Film Festival empowering young, underrepresented voices in film. The event, held at the Writers Guild Theater, included a screening of finalist films and featured a Q&A with President of One Race Films Samantha Vincent and Good Pals production company co-founder Cara Shine. Festival organizers received more than 300 student-produced film submissions from over 50 countries around the world.
