About New Moon

On May 25th, 2024 NEW Moon Fest - Nantucket Empowering Women will present a selection of competitive short films by women. Tickets to the event held at the historical Siasconset Casino Association on Nantucket will be available for purchase in January 2024!

NEW Moon Fest - Nantucket Empowering Women will showcase the official 2024 selection to celebrate women filmmakers and storytellers contributing to the making of cinema both in front of and behind the camera. Women filmmakers from around the world are welcome to submit works that honor the feminine spirit. 


By casting light upon the Wild Woman archetype and her role in storytelling, NEW Moon Fest celebrates the unfettered and unfiltered spirit of women. The Wild Woman is maternal, she is capable of fighting and she is deeply connected to the Earth. She encourages us to go beyond boundaries and to express one’s true self. NEW Moon Fest welcomes films that explore this discourse.
 

The Programmers at NEW Moon Fest - Nantucket Empowering Women are dedicated to discovering this year’s slate of films. Like the new moon, short films by women are powerful even if they are not often seen. NEW Moon Fest - Nantucket Empowering Women will showcase these films to broaden their reach and visibility and to promote impactful storytelling inspired and crafted by women.
