“That’s when I felt like I was really part of this community. I connect with women working in the trenches… When we have difficult decisions to make, or are working on challenging projects, we can rely on one another. We can pick up the phone and call one another to ask for advice. It’s so important to know that you’re not just a lone ranger out there.”—WIF member Germaine Franco, Composer of COCO
Become a Member
When you become a WIF member, you’re part of our core mission: to advocate for and advance the careers of women working in the screen industries—to achieve parity and transform culture. Membership gives you the opportunity to participate in our many programs and join a decades-long tradition of community and progress.
The WIF Annual Gala is a celebration of community, advocacy, and entrepreneurship. We honor women in front of and behind the camera who have made bold choices and broken new ground to advance gender equality across the screen industries.
The members-only Screening Series highlights the dynamic work of talented female filmmakers and engages those creators—like BOOKSMART’s Olivia Wilde and HARRIET’s Kasi Lemmons—in thoughtful conversations. Our yearly slate is a fusion of the entertaining and enlightening, new releases and classic cinema, indie gems and mainstream marvels.
Industry leaders share valuable insights into the art, craft, and business of film, television, and media-making with WIF members and the public at these regular educational events.
