WIF Mini Upfronts Finalist Announced

We are so proud of our members and their amazing trailers!  We had over 100 submissions, which were judged by eight active industry professionals from NBCUniversal, Seed and Spark, Steakhaus Productions, Haven Entertainment, and LA Bellatini Casting.
The top one third have advanced to the semi-finals, where they were judged by studio execs and agents from NBCUniversal, Lionsgate, and CAA, among others. We are pleased to announce that the finalists have been selected and will screen at an exclusive networking event January 13th. More details will be forthcoming.


Congratulations and well-done, female filmmakers!
