Hey, babe! For the first time ever, we're accepting submissions for BABES FEST, #bossbabesATX's annual, independent comedy, music and film festival. SUBMISSIONS* FOR FILM, MUSIC, COMEDY AND INSTALLATIONS ARE DUE BY BY APRIL 1, 2018 at 11:59 PM CST. Applications submitted after that date will not be considered. We will respond to your application by April 20, 2018.

Before you do anything though you need to read the following:

BABES FEST is a celebration. It's a community. It's a protest for gender equality. It's four days of festing. But more than anything else, it's about the art. So, in your proposal, be specific. This event is produced across three venues over the course of three days, and last year we showcased 50+ artists. Submit proposals for temporary installations, three-minute short films, panel discussions on industry issues, 40-minute sets, feature-length movies, you name it. We want to know about the details. We want to know what you've been working on and how you envision that within the festival.

Produced by #bossbabesATX (learn more here:, BABES FEST is an annual comedy, music and film festival based in Austin, Texas, with pop-ups nationwide.

At our inaugural festival in 2015, we transformed a theatre in Austin, Texas into a one-day warehouse party, featuring 27 women-led acts in comedy, music and film. Shortly thereafter, we produced a series of two panels and network events for women in comedy, film and music in New York City (attended by artists like Jessica Williams and Katja Blichfield). From the hype of these initial events, we’ve partnered with Texas' Bullock Museum on their #femmefilmfridays series and begun an international training program for cultural producers invested in gender equity. We just wrapped up our second annual BABES FEST July of 2017, transforming what was initially a one-day event into three days of comedy, music and film (showcasing 50+ acts, the event saw 1500+ attendees). We believe women-identifying and non binary artists, producers, entertainers, cultural organizers deserve a space to celebrate themselves, network and share resources. We believe BABES FEST’s blend of comedy, film and music provides a multi-industry, cross-platform experience for our community—one that allows for unexpected discovery, inspiration and wonderment.
