Melanie Wise, director of the Artemis Women In Action Film Festival 6th Edition (AWIAFF) announces all-access pass availability and scheduled events with Master of Ceremonies Chase Masterson. Artemis welcomes ActorsGuru, iNDIEFLIX, Backstage and Movie Maker as sponsors.
Doing a 30-day virtual event with massive content is not for the faint of heart. During a time when virtual is the most common place for a crowd to gather, Team Artemis expects an enthusiastic assemblage of avid filmgoers, hungry for content featuring WOMEN IN ACTION. Chase Masterson (Star Trek: DS9) returns for a second year to host the Artemis Women In Action Film Festival 6th Edition. This edition of the festival expands its streaming of the event. In past years, the majority of fans congregated in theaters with live entertainers, honorees, filmmakers, musicians, and guests gathering for fours days of nonstop screenings, panel discussions, award ceremonies, and special events. The annual place to network and enjoy new movies is now only online, serving audiences in homes and on mobile devices around the world. Since the yearly event was held the third weekend of April, in recognition of the physical festival in past years, Artemis planned several virtual special events to commemorate this third weekend (23rd-25th) in April 2021.
Friday evening, the 23rd marks the first night of virtual special events with Master of Ceremonies Chase Masterson, delivering the formal festival welcome, and will include special appearances from Artemis’ past honorees. The evening will finish with the 2021 headlining films. Competition awards for all filmmakers, screenplay writers, and musicians will be announced on Sunday evening, the 25th of April. Artemis is delighted to welcome back the All Stars of Stunts panel discussion with stunt woman Dejay Roestenberg and actresses/stuntwomen Marissa Labog and Alyma Dorsey. The panel will be hosted by filmmaker/stunt woman Danielle Burgio. Additionally, AWIAFF 6th Edition introduces The Writers Roundtable with screenplay finalists and Musical Corners with music finalists.
The festival’s all-access pass (https://www.artemisfilmfestival.com/2021-pass/) is available now and grants admittance to all festival events. All festival content will be accessible through May10, 2021. (Who knows, there may even be some bonus viewing days!)

About Artemis Women In Action Film Festival:
Melanie Wise and Zac Baldwin, two filmmakers with a longtime love of female-driven action films, together founded the Artemis Women In Action Film Festival. Wise and Baldwin have produced shorts and features, focusing on female action projects. They saw that audiences around the world loved the genre despite the fact that studios (for many years) claimed female action films were box office poison. In 2014, the idea of Artemis was born with the intent to create a space where these types of films could play for audiences with an unsatisfied hunger for female-driven action films. And for the 6th Edition, Artemis is proud to include for the second year women-powered music, sponsored by Bella Composers (https://www.bellacomposers.org).
