Fund for Women Filmmakers
NYWIFT provides completion funding to women filmmakers.
The Fund provides financial assistance to female graduate film students at Columbia University, New York Universities, and The City College of New York, and one female graduate at the School of Visual Arts.
Women's Film Preservation Fund (WFPF)
The WFPF awards cash grants and in-kind post-production services to preserve or restore films in which women have played a significant creative role.
Your generous support of NYWIFT in your estate or retirement plans provides us with the ability to help women for many generations to come. Those who include NYWIFT in their estate plans will be welcomed into our LightsCameraAction Society. Learn more about planned giving and NYWIFT.
