Kicking off in Mexico City on 29–31 March 2021, and culminating in Paris in June 2021, the Forum will secure a set of transformative commitments for gender equality.

Filmmakers must choose one category: Feminist movements and Leadership; Economic Justice and Rights; or Women, Peace and Security and Humanitarian Action.


  • The winner of each category will receive a cash prize of $1,000 USD.


  • Films must not exceed 3 minutes of running time, including credits.

  • Any film type is accepted, fiction, nonfiction or documentary, experimental videos, animation, and more. They encourage a creative spirit that reflects youth activism – diverse, inclusive, original.
