Get Involved

Annual Gala

Since 1977, WIF has annually honored outstanding women in the entertainment industry who have broken ground and excelled in their chosen fields. In 2019, we debuted new awards honoring women whose entrepreneurial strides actively create opportunities for more women to succeed in careers in the screen industries. Formerly named the Crystal + Lucy Awards®, the WIF Annual Gala supports our educational and philanthropic programs and our advocacy for gender parity for women throughout the industry.


For more information about how you or your company can support the WIF Annual Gala, contact Director of Development Courtney LaBarge Bell at clabargebell@wif.org.

Program Sponsorship

Many of WIF’s year-round programming could not happen without the support of our partners. Events like our Speaker Series and Screening Series, grants like the Film Finishing Fund, practical training through our Production Program, and the WIF Help Line are just some of the mission critical offerings WIF provides with the help of corporate and municipal sponsors. Especially now that our members and industry are acclimating to a “new normal” in 2020, many of these programs have been lifelines to our constituents.
