The Women Texas Film Festival will be returning for its second year to challenge gender inequity in entertainment.

This time, at the festival’s sponsor, Studio Movie Grill on Northwest Highway in Dallas. Running Aug. 16–20, the festival will feature eight feature films, 38 short films, and three virtual reality projects, D Magazine’s Alex Macon reported.

“Following the success of last year’s WTxFF, our challenge this year was to grow in the areas where our hopes and ambitions led us, without jeopardizing the things that worked so well in our debut,” festival founder and artistic director Justina Walford said in a release.

The film prices range from $50 to $75 for all films to a $95 package for access to all three days of screenings, events, and parties. Individual screenings are $10.

Walford said Dallas is “home to some of the most enthusiastic and discerning film audiences in the entire country.” 

“As the only full-fledged film festival in Texas focusing solely on the work of women behind the camera, the heart of WTxFF is shining a light on women pulling the strings and at the helm of visual storytelling,” Walford said.
