Film Festival

The Tucker Center Film Festival is one of more than 1,000 events taking place across the country for National Girls and Women in Sport Day (NGWSD). Congress has proclaimed this national day each year since 1987. It recognizes the progress of girls and women in sports and the benefits that sports and fitness activities can bring to the lives of all girls and women. The Day is organized nationally by the Girl Scouts of the USA, Girls Incorporated, the National Association for Girls and Women in Sport, the National Women's Law Center, and the Women's Sport Foundation.

The 5th Annual Tucker Center Film Festival will be held February 2, 2015, to celebrate National Girls and Women in Sport Day.

With a November 15, 2014 deadline, we are currently taking submissions of feature-length or short (less than 30 min) films that are documentaries or dramas. Entries must focus on girls and/or women in sport or physical activity. Submission guidelines and an entry form can be found here.
