Welcome to Reel Equals International Film Festival, a production of Through Women’s Eyes in beautiful Sarasota, Florida! Our 26th festival, Reel Equals, is March 6-10, 2025

We are an international, mission-driven festival, dedicated to women filmmakers and films that address issues inadequately represented in the mainstream media. This year we will emphasize films about the environment and climate which will be featured in The Green Room. We are also looking for films that the whole family will be able to watch together and discuss. Every year we host significant numbers of films from all over the world.

What we're looking for

We actively seek films that showcase efforts to bring about gender equality, important social themes and current events, films that reflect the LGBTQ+ experience, and films reflecting the full diversity of global women. We are looking for films that illuminate women’s universal experiences and we welcome films from any country.

We accept films made by anyone identifying as female or non-binary; OR made by any filmmaker whose films focus on women’s stories, interests and lives.
