The International Conference of Hispanic Women Filmmakers (CIMCiH) intends to actively contribute to the body of scholarly work on Women Directors, specifically those whose films are conceived and conducted in Spanish. This conference serves as a platform where creators, authors, scholars, and students can discuss their research, and ultimately promote their work, expanding the boundaries of this historically overlooked collective.

What challenges are faced by the audiences interested in films directed by women? How distinct is a woman filmmaker’s gaze behind the camera? To what extent are political issues, artistic tendencies, and contexts of social change shaping the cinematic product? These questions are the foundations of this conference, which seeks to heighten the visibility of Women Filmmakers and their work across and beyond the Hispanic world.
