Women's Filmmaking Legacy:
Preserving the Past, Maintaining the Present
NYWIFT invites you to a presentation of our Women's Film Preservation Fund (WFPF). Join us for an evening of wine and light refreshments to learn about WFPF's work to preserve the legacy of women filmmakers.
The WFPF provides grants to restore and preserve films in which women have had major creative roles. The Fund was recognized for excellence by Anthology Film Archive's Film Preservation Honors in 2012, and has contributed to the preservation of over 100 projects, including Barbara Kopple's Oscar-winning documentary Harlan County, USA (1976), That Man of Mine (1947) with Ruby Dee and and five films by America's first director, Alice Guy Blaché.

More about the Women's Film Preservation Fund:
Nearly two decades ago, NYWIFT members began working to establish the only program in the world dedicated to preserving the cultural legacy of women in film and television. In conjunction with the Museum of Modern Art, we founded WFPF to identify and preserve American films in which women have played a significant creative role, and sought to use these restored films to increase awareness of women's contributions to film.
For more information and grant guidelines, please visit the WFPF page at our website.
NYWIFT programs, screenings and events are supported, in part, by grants from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
