call for choreographers and film makers

for 2nd annual


**DEADLINE EXTENDED FOR FILM SUBMISSIONS! Submit your film or concept for a new film by Saturday, October 5th!**


April 24th-26th, 2020

The B Complex


Hosted by Atlanta Dance Collective, and sponsored by the B Complex, FEMMEfest provides a channel for the innovative and insightful work that women are creating in the Southeast region in a beautiful and unconventional performance space. In producing this program, we aim to highlight the Southeast’s female dance and film makers, while building further opportunities to see and share work in the Atlanta community!


This three-day festival will take place April 24-26th, 2020 at The B Complex in Atlanta, GA. Films will be screened in the front gallery space. Technical rehearsals for live performances will be held April 23rd. 


The B Complex houses a beautiful creative community and a large performance gallery space providing an unconventional and unique spot for the performances and screenings. All applicants are encouraged to keep in mind the space as they propose/create work for FEMMEfest. The space is bare- concrete floors, minimalist lighting, and no central temperature control. Please see photos below of last year’s performances, or check out The B Complex website to learn more about the space.
