Films have power. They create conversation. They reveal truths. They inspire. But for far too long, Hollywood has told only half the story: what is missing are the stories of women as change agents and heroes in their own right. For the fourth year, Barnard College, the most sought-after women’s college in the nation, will celebrate women’s leadership both on and off-screen at the Athena Film Festival, scheduled to take place from Feb. 6 to 9, 2014. Submissions are now open for the Athena Film Festival. They will be accepted until Sept. 15. Read the submission criteria.
