Women In Film (WIF), NYWIFT’s Los Angeles sister chapter, is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting equal opportunities for women, encouraging creative projects by women, and expanding and enhancing portrayals of women in all forms of global media. Given that women comprise fifty percent of the population, WIF’s ultimate goal is to see the same gender parity reflected on and off screen. Founded in 1973, WIF focuses on advocacy and education, provides scholarships, grants, and film finishing funds and works to preserve the legacies of all women working in the entertainment community.
Both WIF and NYWIFT are part of Women in Film International (WIFTI), a global network comprised of some 40 Women In Film Chapters worldwide and over 13,000 members dedicated to advancing professional development and achievement for women working in all areas of film, video, and other screen-based media.
