51Fest, a partnership between Women in the World and IFC Center, is a multi-platform event, celebrating the voice and vision of the female majority through screenings, conversation, and performance, all by and about women. The result is compelling and original entertainment for everyone. Women make up more than half of our population, and 51Fest puts women where they belong: at the center of the story.
The festival builds on the mission of the Women in the World Summit, founded by Tina Brown in 2009, to amplify and celebrate women’s voices from around the globe by convening women activists, artists, CEOs, peacemakers, entrepreneurs, and dissidents to share their remarkable, often untold, stories.
The festival takes place at IFC Center and other screening venues in New York City.
