Catalyze: The WIF Production Program


The Production Program will select four creative teams to produce and distribute four short-film or digital projects, with the guidance of seasoned mentors. The goal of this program is to elevate the next generation of female filmmakers, from a diversity of backgrounds, by producing short-form content (film, web series, PSA, social action film) that will help them build a sustainable career. Through the program, the participants increase their skills, network, visibility and reels. Each film will have a creative team: writer, director and producer, with a mentor in each discipline. Once the films are complete they are screened for the industry and released on YouTube and on the Women In Film Website. Application coming soon!

For 25 years WIF ran the PSA production program and in that time made over 150 PSAs (many of them award-winners) for over 150 charities. During that time, over 4,000 WIF Members participated in the program. We are transitioning the program to include other forms of content – including PSAs. Information about the PSA program is below.
