The Female Eye Film Festival (FeFF) is a Designated Industry Partner for Telefilm’s Talent to Watch Program. We are also recommending projects for the Indigenous Stream. For the Indigenous stream the writer, director and producer team must identify as Indigenous. For non-Indigenous projects, only the director must have had a short film presented at  the Female Eye Film Festival FeFF. 


We invite all FeFF alumni to submit applications to femaleeyefilmfestival@gmail.com.     

Applications must be submitted
