“Until women are portrayed as physically equal we will continue being seen as less.”
-Melanie Wise Founder Artemis Women in Action Film Festival
Artemis Motion Pictures is producing the world's first film festival devoted exclusively to honoring female driven action films. The first of its kind, the inaugural Artemis Women in Action Film Festival will be held in Los Angeles Friday April 24th thru Sunday April 26th. Female action film star Linda Hamilton will be awarded the first ever Action ICON Award.
The Artemis Women in Action Film Festival will feature classic and present female action movies and honor the cinematic female action greats, including the men and women who pioneered them and those who contributed to the success of the genre. The buzz around the festival has attracted the attention and support of high profile influencers such as Roseanne Barr, Sean Astin, and Dennis Haysbert, all of whom have graciously helped boost the popularity of the official hashtag, #WomenKickAss
Artemis is currently raising funds on Indie GoGo for completion.

A portion of the funds raised will be donated to the non-profit Girls On The Run - LA County Division- to celebrate their 10 years of making a difference in girls' lives across the nation.
