WFPF Award: Major congratulations to NYWIFT’s Women’s Film Preservation Fund (WFPF), which received the Archivist’s Round Table of Metropolitan New York’s 2019 Outstanding Support of Archives award last week. The award recognizes an individual or organization for notable contributions to archival records or archives programs through political, financial or moral support.
DOC NYC: There are more than 20 projects featuring NYWIFT members in a key role screening at DOC NYC next month! It’s wonderful to see so many members of our community represented and recognized for their outstanding work.
Kathryn Hahn: Loved this New York Times feature on Kathryn Hahn, whose new series Mrs. Fletcher just debuted on HBO. “The sort of raw, unadorned, often private sensuality that Hahn portrays so well feels like something new, a terrain that television has only recently begun to dig into. “
On January 13, 2020, the same day that the 2020 Oscars nominations were released — with not a single woman nominated for Best Director for the 87th time in 92 years — the founders of Women’s Weekend Film Challenge (WWFC) opened up applications for their first Los Angeles-based event to advance women in the film industry. The organization’s goals are to provide an intensive networking opportunity for female filmmakers while telling women’s stories on screen. WWFC founders say that the reason so many women apply to the challenge is because they know that the film industry revolves around connections — and WWFC provides the perfect opportunity to make them. Co-founder (and NYWIFT member) Katrina Medoff explains why the group is more relevant than ever.READ MORE
