Because we're a group of talented women nearly 2,500 strong. NYWIFT membership creates business and networking opportunities — where you can build your career, hone your skills, stay in the job market, preserve your cultural legacy, and make a difference. If you want to be part of a community that supports women in their careers, you should join.
How much does it cost?
Several membership levels provide an array of benefits and added value. Regular membership can be paid $15.41 per month or $185 annually, plus a one-time initiation fee of $135. Considering the free screenings and events, membership literally pays for itself.
What are the benefits?
Individuals with at least four years of professional experience in film, TV or digital media can apply online.
Or you can apply offline: Download the application (above) or call 212-679-0870, ext. 23, to have one mailed to you. Fax the completed application to 212-679-0899 or mail to 6 East 39th Street, 12th Floor, New York, NY 10016.
Those with less than four years experience can still be a part of NYWIFT as a Next Wave member. Email email@example.com to apply.
Don't forget to indicate the name of the person who referred you in the Referred By box on the application so they can get the credit for bringing you in. That person can also be one of your two professional references. Your two professional references do not have to be NYWIFT members.
