A lot has been happening in WIFT land over the last few months, and we would like to pass on our thanks for your patience in allowing the newly elected Committee the time to begin planning for the next iteration of WIFT.
We look forward to beginning a new dialogue with you and to rebuilding the organisation on the values that it first championed: progressiveness, access and equality.
Women in Film and Television (WIFT) NSW is committed to improving the status of women, both on and off the screen, by supporting and advancing women working in the film, television and related screen industries. We are a membership based non-profit organisation.
In 1982 a group of women, committed to improving the position and representation of women in the film and television industries, established Women in Film and Television NSW. WIFT recognises the professional excellence achieved by women in all areas of the industry, providing a unique forum for communication, professional development and networking.
WIFT (NSW) is part of a global organisation, Women in Film and Television International (WIFTI), which provides a foundation for global co-operation as well as a public voice representing and unifying our members worldwide.
Women are under-represented in most areas of filmmaking. This remains not only a matter of equal employment opportunity but also impacts on the way stories are told on screen
