Supporting Women Filmmakers

Our mission is simple yet critical: Supporting Women Filmmakers. We’ve partnered with the finest academic and filmmaking institutions, including the Sundance Institute, AFI, IFP, Women in Film, Tribeca Film Institute, Nantucket Film Festival, Boston University, Columbia University and Rooftop Films, to provide scholarships, production grants, finishing funds and living stipends, and have granted over fifty awards to-date. This group includes Cynthia Wade, who won an Academy Award in 2008 for her documentary Freeheld, which ASF helped fund, as well as other notable filmmakers Dee Rees, Maryam Keshevarz, Ana Lily Amirpour, Ondi Timoner, Annie Sundberg/Ricki Stern, Nanette Burstein, Stacie Passon and Lucy Mulloy.

With your generous tax-deductible donation, you can honor Adrienne’s legacy and help other very talented women achieve their filmmaking dreams. We thank you for your support.
