The 4th Annual Women Sports Film Festival celebrates female athletes and storytellers. From legendary champions to girls on the local playing field, the festival promotes films and conversations that explore how sport shapes the lives of women and girls around the world. With 70% of the films directed by women, the lineup includes 15 documentaries, narratives and short films depicting 13 sports, representing seven countries including Syria, Japan, and South Africa and includes two World Premieres. This year’s films address some of the most pressing social issues of our times including sexual abuse, pay equity, and equal access for transgender athletes.

Female athletes have been at the forefront of the current social justice movement, using their platforms to advocate and influence. These women in these films (at the Women Sports Film Festival) are so freaking bold. They blow me away with their courage and their tenacity. I’m taken by these personal stories and their ability to connect with other women. These are very powerful messages at this point.
