Welcome to Female Film Club

The online networking platform for international female and non-binary identifying filmmakers

What we believe

  • Every creative needs an excellent NETWORK, MINDSET and SKILLS in order to thrive.

    In the FFC you make real connections, you really get to know each other through the events where you laugh, discuss and learn. We believe this is the true networking.

    You also get to work weekly on your mindset with a visualization and goal setting exercise starting each week on Monday morning, and every month we have an event with a life coach, these range from systemic constellation work, to EFT, to NLP etc. pick and chose which one fit you!

    And of course skills, you can't deliver excellence without them. Through our masterclasses and workshops with industry leaders you stay on top and keep growing. 
  •  Female made indie films need to be seen

    There are so many female made, (non-English language!) films that don’t get the exposure they deserve outside their own territory, but with an abundance of films online, where do you find them?

    We've got a database full of groundbreaking films so you can expand your horizon and get inspired by what your film sisters on the other side of the world have been making.

  • Our lives will be improved if we share our resources and knowledge

    There is so much global knowledge to be shared, which can stay within small territories and not reach us if we don't connect with each other.

    In the Female Film Club you can discuss anything film related, private message each other, network through in-depth film discussions, get industry perks from every corner and more..



    The Female Film Club is a sisterhood, we don’t compete with one another and leave our ego offline

Why you should join the Female Film Club

  • We're online. This means that you can network, join workshops and masterclasses from industry leaders, and don't have to spend money travelling, buying drinks or organise a baby sitter. All our sessions are guided and with a small group so you don't have to pretend you're an extrovert or spend more effort than necessary (hello sweatpants and lipstick hack ;) ). 
  • Online distribution with Herflix. This is an opportunity to get online distribution for your (short and feature) films which took hard work to make and deserve to be seen. All members will be able to submit their films for consideration, as long as it completed the film festival circuit it will be eligible for distribution. 
  • We're personal. Our online networking sessions are capped at 15 people capacity, this ensures real connections and in-depth conversations where everyone is involved.

  • You'll learn. There are workshops, seminars and conversations with industry leaders, open and free to all members.
    And with members from 15 countries and a variety of roles within the industry, everyone shares a different perspective on filmmaking and life. We celebrate having difficult conversations as we believe that's how we grow and create an industry where we can all thrive. By hearing each others' stories, experiences, and sharing films you'll expand your knowledge beyond your own territory. 
  • We're not corporate. We are creatives, just like you, and we're here because we love it. The Female Film Club is a safe space, designed for you to have fun while meeting new people.
  • You'll create your international film festival tribe. Through the Female Film Club you can meet, and keep connecting with other professionals from different countries. You'll know exactly who's going to which (virtual and real life) film festival, attend events together, and of course stay in touch during and after.

FAQ

Toni Erdmann (2016) by Maren Ade

How does the Female Film Club work if I don’t have time?

Our events are between 45-60 min, we have different options for different time zones, so we’ll promise you there will be one perfect just for you! Our FFC app makes the club easy to access anytime, anywhere whenever you have a min or two. We don’t have any clutter/advertisement on our app so you won’t waste time scrolling through uninteresting junk to find valuable information.


I can watch films on Netflix + Amazon, why do I need the Female Film Club?

The algorithm might not push those great indie films forward that can really enrich your life, we filter them for you and provide you with resources about the film so you know the backstory of the female filmmakers. We'll also keep you updated about the female directed/written/produced/shot films at film festivals such as Berlinale, BFI London Film Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Cannes, Raindance etc., so you're always ahead of the game.

Will the FFC be worth my money?

We’re so confident it will, we’ll give you a first 2 week subscription to check it out yourself. You can always cancel your membership before your payment is due.


I am trans/genderqueer/non binary, can I join the platform?

Of course! This platform is not only for cis-gender woman but EVERY WOMXN or non-binary filmmaker is more than welcome to be a member! We are committed to making the club as inclusive as possible and welcome any feedback, our mission is to work towards a film industry that celebrates ALL humans and are willing to listen, learn, and amplify the voices that have been silenced for too long. In addition, if you are a male-identifying filmmaker that would love to learn with us, our doors are open.

I’m a mother with a child and very busy, how can this work?

We’ve created the club with you in our minds and have therefor decided that every meeting is child-friendly, you can bring your child along and we’ll make sure that everyone watches their languages and the topics are appropriate when there are children around. This way you don't have to choose, we'll make sure you can do it all!

 I have many female film connections already, what can the Female Film Club add?

That’s great! The Female Film Club is here especially to connect you with a diverse international female community, to really get to know filmmakers outside your own network.


I am already going to film festivals

This is the before and after care, making connections at film festivals is great, but realistically, how many of those connections do you stay in touch with organically until you see them again (if you do). Emails can be too corporate and Instagram too personal (hello holiday pictures!). The Female Film Club the perfect platform to further develop those connections without having to do the awkward ‘What have you been up to?’ small talk as you’ll be seeing each other regularly in the Club.

 Why is it all women? 

We have created a safe space where sensitive conversations can be brought up and discussed, particularly female specific problems. We still value and champion brilliant films made by men and will recommend those films who honour the female gaze.


 I am too shy to network and do it with video

Don’t worry, this is exactly why many women join the platform. You see how comfortable you’ll feel after just one meetup. We’ll make sure you’ll feel relaxed and heard. The sessions are being led, and there is no pressure at all on the amount you’ll speak.

Tremble All You Want (2017) by Akiko Ohku


I am not technical, will this be tricky?

You’re speaking to the most A-technical women, because of this we made our membership platform extremely easy to use, if we can do it, so can you! On top of that we’ll guide you through any problems, have an event for new members to explain all the ins and outs and you can always email us. As long as you’ll have a smartphone or laptop you’ll be absolutely fine.

I don’t have time to watch a film a week

Don’t worry, you don’t have to join every week’s discussion. If you see the film another time, you can always join the conversation on the forum and you’ll always have the resources sheet when you need it. The Female Film Club is a community, the film recommendation is only one of our features.

Mudbound (2017) by Dee Rees


I don’t just want to watch indie films

We’re choosing a broad range of female directed, written and produced films and because of the budget many female filmmakers get, this results often in them being indie films. However, every now and then, we discuss high budget films, and if you have a film you really want to discuss, send it over and we would love to hear your recommendation.


My English isn’t great

Everyone in the platform is respectful and no one expects everyone to be fluent in English, we LOVE having so many women speaking different languages. Google translate and join the conversation in the chat is always an option and Nicole and Liza speak 9 languages combined so there might even be a chance we can translate for you!
