In the midst of an extraordinary year of transformation, uncertainty, and hope, we honor the artists who make cinema the vibrant, vital art form we celebrate each year. Mind the Gap continues to do this by proudly supporting female filmmakers, nonbinary filmmakers, and other marginalized filmmakers. This year, we are happy to announce the return of the Mind the Gap Summit where we will discuss what comes next for the art and business of cinema, and share in the joy of community. Our films and programs highlight bold female and nonbinary perspectives that will challenge, empower, and inspire you. We look forward to celebrating at the festival and hope you will join us.

Mind the Gap is a platform for inclusion and equity, committed to helping marginalized filmmakers break through the gatekeeping that has long made the industry exclusionary and help undo a harmful history of defaults.
