About Etheria Film Night

“The ladies who put Etheria on, they’re taste-makers as far as sci-fi and horror filmmaking are concerned, and the fact that I am part of this amazing line up of amazing female horror/sci-fi directors, it makes me really excited. I feel like it’s important and more women need to be involved in genre.” – Amber Benson

The world’s most respected showcase of new sci-fi, fantasy, action, thriller and horror films made by women

Etheria Film Night is an annual showcase screening of a progressive slate of genre films directed by women for an audience including producers, managers, show runners, distributors, and genre fans.  Women want to make exciting, provocative, entertaining, fantastic, and terrifying films. Etheria puts the women directors who want to make genre films and TV in front of the people who want to hire them.

The main showcase will take place in June, 2017. The event is hosted by American Cinematheque, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting all forms of films through screenings at the historic Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood and Aero Theatre in Santa Monica.
