The Archive Project documents interviews with women who have been professionally active in New York since 1977. The interviews expound on and highlight women's contributions to film, television and digital media. All categories of professionals are represented—grips to DPs, executives to script supervisors, makeup artists to writers.
The Archive Committee is indebted to Nice Shoes Studio for their extraordinary attention to our post-production needs. Kudos to Jeff Kyle and Kristine Pregot and NYWIFT intern Lucille Auclair.
The most recent group of interviewees included Rachael Horovitz (Producer, Moneyball), Wendy Blackstone (Music Composer, Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory) and Nina Rosenblum (Director/Producer, Ordinary Miracles). In 2011, the committee interviewed Barbara De Fina (Hugo), Leslie Harris (Just Another Girl on the I.R.T.) and Barbara Kopple (Harlan County), among others.
