Our Mission

Now in its second year, the COVEN Film Festival is devoted to films by women and non-binary filmmakers from the San Francisco Bay Area and around the world.  By spotlighting these under-represented voices, we aim to tell and amplify their stories to new audiences and the filmmaking community.
