We want to help fight professional inequality, opportunity imbalance and the salary gap that exists in the filmmaking industry. We advocate for a more just, parity and empathic society.
And how do we intend on doing that? In addition to the online festival we’re hosting, which includes 15 short films from 5 different continents, we’ll be hosting activities and meetings throughout the year to train and provide tools for the new professionals in the filmmaking industry. CONOFEST – International (Short) Film Festival isn’t just a showcasing platform for female filmmaking content, it’s so much more! The festival is a network of filmmakers, a community, a meeting point, a place to train, it is a multidisciplinar space with the objective of incentivising, promoting and boosting film creation. Wow! All of that? That, and much more.
For starters, this year we want to pay tribute to three women who represent fight, justice and who essentially made history: Clara Campoamor, Sojourner Truth y Rosie “The Riveter”. We’ve come so far thanks to the work and efforts of many women that precede us, and we could not forget about them.
We’ve already told you we share a comon objective: achieving true parity in the filmmaking industry. So, why film? Because we love it deeply and there’s still a long way to go to achieve what we want. In addition, we want to contribute in another fight, and that is the one to specifically promote filmmaking in a short format. At CONOFEST – International (Short) Film Festival you are contributing to give them the space they deserve as a film entity itself.
We also want to let you know that this project has a completely feminist prespective. And what does that mean? It means it is after equality and it intends to showcase, give support and job opportunities to a collective that is still opressed by the patriarchy and the capitalist system.
It doesn’t make sense to us to go after all these objectives if it isn’t with equity, commitment, trust, tolerance and empathy towards everyone involved at CONOFEST – International (Short) Film Festival.
We would love for CONOFEST – International (Short) Film Festival and its objectives to reach as much people as possible. Also, we would like for this value exchange and content exchange to be as original and personal as possible.
