Women and Hollywood is a founding organization of the Athena Film Festival and Melissa Silverstein is a co-founder and serves as the Artistic Director.

Now in its sixth year, the Athena Film Festival — a celebration of women and leadership — is an engaging weekend of feature films, documentaries and shorts that highlight women’s leadership in real life and the fictional world.  The four-day festival, which includes conversations with directors and talent and workshops for filmmakers, has quickly established itself as one of the most prestigious festivals of its kind.

The festival will be held Feb. 9 – 12, 2017 in the heart of New York — at Barnard, the most sought-after women’s college in the nation.  The Founding Sponsor of the Festival is Artemis Rising Foundation, Regina K. Scully, CEO and Founder.
