2022 AFF Plans

In 2022, the Athena Film Festival at Barnard College will be back in person on the Barnard campus in Morningside Heights for three days of shorts, features, and documentary films as well as panel conversations and filmmaker Q&As. After nearly two years of isolation, the Festival will be an opportunity to bring together women and nonbinary filmmakers, allies, audiences, community partners, and sponsors to mourn, celebrate, and advocate for a more inclusive understanding of what leadership looks like.

As the premier film festival dedicated to celebrating and elevating women’s leadership, the Athena Film Festival will showcase films and women whose leadership has been questioned, dismissed or erased, women who have risen up, spoken truth to power, women who empower their communities, inspire and educate, or women who simply survive – these are the stories we want to see. These are Athena stories. Panel conversations will focus on topics of advocacy and inclusion in the industry and in our culture.

A virtual program will also be available March 11 – 20, 2022 for ticket and passholders across the country. This includes selected films and panel discussions.

The full film program will be shared early in 2022.

We’ll see you in March!
