“I attended the recent WIFV Job Fair…and wanted to share with the WIFV family that as a result of stopping by Fox 5’s table, I was able to get booked to appear on the Fox5 Morning Show… I’ll be talking about my film, Can She Be Saved? which deals with teen girl fights. Because of the recent surge in bullying and girl fighting AND being at the WIFV job fair to network, I was able to sell the importance of my film and the timing was perfect.  Thanks WIFV. In terms of return on investment, being a member of WIFV and attending the events is beyond WORTH THE MONEY.”

– Yasmin Shiraz, Writer/Director, Still Eye Rise Films
