Halloween costumes are optional but strongly encouraged! 🎃 Let’s get creative.
As a bonus – we are thrilled to have two tarot card readers join us that evening! So if you get lucky and get matched with one of them for a breakout session, they’ll be happy to read your fortune.
We are also raffling off two longer 45-minute phone sessions with the tarot card readers. All registrants for the Spooky Virtual Hangout will be automatically entered for one free raffle ticket. Additional tickets are available to the public to purchase here on our website for:
$25 — 1 Ticket

About Women’s Weekend Film Challenge
WWFC was founded by Katrina Medoff and Tracy Sayre in 2017 to address the lack of women’s representation behind the camera and on screen. The organization is best known for its signature film challenge that has produced 30 short films with more than 700 professional female filmmakers. In 2020, WWFC established a popular virtual workshop series that provides career advice from the top women of Hollywood.
Recently, WWFC launched a brand-new pilot accelerator designed both to help emerging writers advance their careers and to increase the representation of women and non-binary people in television. This program is geared toward writers with strong, completed pilot scripts who lack the industry connections to sell their series or break into the writers room.
