About the Davis Feminist Film Festival
The Davis Feminist Film Festival is a grassroots event that uses alternative media as a springboard for linking art to social issues. The goal of the festival is to showcase independent film spanning documentary, narrative, and experimental genres in order to explore perspectives often missing from mainstream media and culture. Now in its 8th year and increasingly international in scope, the festival provides an inclusive public space for under-represented artists—particularly women and people of color—to raise consciousness about gender, race, class, sexuality, and other dimensions of social inequality. It is a fun, inspiring, community-building event for artists and audiences alike!

The Davis Feminist Film Festival started in 2005 as a fundraiser for international internships with grassroots feminist non-profit organizations run through the Gender and Global Issues Program (GGI) housed in Women and Gender Studies at UC Davis. In 2007, when the funding for GGI ended, the Consortium for Women and Research partnered with other campus units in order to sustain and grow the festival.. That same year, the Margareta Amy Lelea Scholarship was created to support UCD students in their creation and participation in internships which are focused on international gender justice. An online application can be found on the Women’s Resources and Research Center website at:

All proceeds generated go toward operating costs and providing invaluable internship experience for the student organizers.
