Call for proposals/MadCat Women’s International Film Festival/San Francisco, USA

MadCat is committed to showcasing women directors who challenge the use of sound and image and explore notions of visual story telling. MadCat sets itself apart from other women’s festivals by curating its programs thematically and thus accepting a range of films about many different issues.

MadCat accepts films and video of all lengths and genres: experimental, narrative, documentary, animation, collage and whatever else you can think of. MadCat also accepts pieces produced in any year. Our only parameter is that the films and videos are directed by or co-directed by women.

VHS 1/2" NTSC or PAL; DVD formats.
