Abstract: An International Women's film festival - the first of its kind in Australia, will be held from August through to October in every state capital city and Canberra. In Melbourne and Sydney the festivals will run for nine days to a total audience of 56,000 people and in the other states the festivals will run for two or three days. Co-ordinating groups in each state have been working since September last year and during January and February two women from the group went to Europe and America to negotiate for features card short films we knew we wanted and to view others we were undecided about. The second part of their job was to make video interviews with women directors, writers, camera operators and to exchange with various womens video groups. So that running alongside the full-scale film festival will be extensive video screenplays at separate smaller venues. Moreover we will compile, edit and blow-up for the big screen a documentary on women filmmakers out of these video interviews.
