ASWM Launches Film Series

ASWM has a keen interest in quality films on scholarly subjects related to women and mythology.  Such films are excellent educational and community resources.  With this in mind we have launched a Film Series for conferences/symposia.  We will consider documentary, narrative, and creative films for inclusion in the series.  The following guidelines are in place for selection of films.

ASWM Film Guidelines

1.      The film should be a scholarly work from a feminist/womanist perspective.

2.      The focus of the film should include some form of women’s experience. (This may also include addressing the exclusion of women.)

3.      The film topic should include a component of myth, sacredness and/or practice inspired by earth spirituality.

4.      The film may address  historical, contemporary or future-oriented topics anywhere on the globe, in cyberspace, and beyond.

5.      The film may be artistic or realistic in approach.

6.      ASWM wishes to encourage respectful study and representation of diverse cultures and experience.  To that end, films should include the perspective of those being filmed to every extent possible.  Collaborative projects are welcomed.

Dates and deadlines for each event will be announced on this site.  Films may be submitted for consideration by contacting aswmsubmissions@gmail.com for the submission form.  Please put “Film Proposal” in the subject line followed by the film title.
