To uplift the visions and voices of lesbian filmmakers, and to provide a dedicated space to publicly showcase their art.
We intend to build bridges among audiences, filmmakers and the community at large through the exhibition of lesbian produced films and other events scheduled throughout the weekend.
Cinema Systers Film Festival
is an "acorn" from the
Michigan Womyn's Music Festival.
Thank you, Lisa Vogel,
the dedicated worker community, and the thousands of MICHFEST attendees,
for 40 years
of building womyn's community.
We exist today, because you showed us
"Lesbian filmmakers put this festival at the top of your list, and if you are accepted make sure you attend! It is an extremely well run festival and we could not have asked for more. We really appreciated the warm and open atmosphere. In addition to the films, the parties and panels were interesting and lots of fun. The facilities where the events were held were great. It is a great festival to interact with other filmmakers and the audience."
