Women in Film & Video DCMembershipMembership Benefits

Face the challenge. Being a member of WIFV gives you a voice. As an advocate for gender parity in front of and behind the camera in screen-based media, you can weigh in on issues facing our industry and make a difference. WIFV has six regular committees and several subcommittees you can join to help with our strategic planning and program delivery.

Discover new opportunities. With your WIFV membership, you will receive free or reduced admission to nearly 90 events each year, including educational panels, discussions, workshops, seminars, screenings and special events. WIFV Roundtable Groups allow members to connect in a more meaningful way with each other around special interests, location or member type. WIFV hosts a Media Job Fair that connects applicants with companies who are hiring in our area and results in new hires every year.  The member-only listserv posts job openings, grant and festival deadlines, and lots of technical advice.  It puts 900 colleagues in your back office!

Join a community of 900+ media professionals. As a member, you can easily network with more than 900 professionals from the film, television, video and related screen-based media industries. WIFV members are automatically affiliated with Women in Film and Television International (WIFTI) and Women in Film and Television US (WIFT-US). Benefits include three-month visiting memberships, reduced price registration at WIFTI and WIFT-US programming, a national crew list, and dual memberships with some chapters. Forge new relationships with the people who can make a difference in your career. WIFV members can choose to be listed in the online WIFV member directory.

Reach out to the community. Go to the WIFV YouTube channel to view PSAs made by the WIFV Image Makers program. The Kids World Film Festival visits fifth-grade classrooms to provide media literacy training and then empowers the students to be critical thinkers at an international shorts film festival.
