The weekly podcast Media & Monuments features conversations with industry professionals speaking on a wide range of topics of interest to our region’s media makers.
WIFV is by far the most valuable organisation in which I have had the honour of membership. This is the only group of people around who go so very far beyond simply meeting periodically and voicing support. Each person completely supports each other, creatively, spiritually, materially… had I been fortunate enough to have had WIFV in my life to begin with, I’d have followed my dreams from day one. They give me confidence, encouragement, strength, and hope for the future of the arts.
Women in Film & Video (WIFV) provides educational and networking opportunities for screen-based media makers, celebrates women’s creative and technical achievements in media, and advocates for parity both in front of and behind the camera to ensure that all voices can be heard. A 501(c)(3) non-profit community benefit organization founded in 1979, WIFV is the premier professional resource for people who want successful media careers in the DC-metro region. Our resources, connections and advocacy support a vibrant, creative media community.
Each year, WIFV produces nearly 100 events, including educational panels, discussions, workshops, seminars, and screenings. These events allow members to network, share knowledge, and exchange ideas. Our programs range from technical to theoretical, and feature local and national industry leaders. Currently, all WIFV programs are being held online. Check out the calendar for what’s next on our schedule!
