Community Partners

Each year, the Athena Film Festival works with a network of local and national community partners who share our commitment to women’s leadership, gender equity, and advancing inclusion.

Partners help us spread the word about the festival with their membership, bring delegations of folks to the festival to join in community as part of our audience, and help connect our audiences to myriad ways to take action.

There is no cost to becoming a community partner — just a commitment to helping us spread the word about the festival and to our cause!
