Reel Women is an organization that supports and empowers women. Women actors, filmmakers and producers, etc . . . I have been a member unable to attend not knowing the function until last week. I was impressed. So much talent and information is available to all of us at Reel Women. I look forward to becoming more available to this group and their work.

I feel so fortunate that this organization exists and does what it does. Top-quality speakers educate the community about every aspect of film-making, from production planning to distribution. The monthly mixers provide amazing opportunities to network, learn from, and support colleagues at all levels. This group really makes the Austin film-making community a COMMUNITY.

Storytelling is the most powerful communication tool on the planet. Filmmaking is quickly becoming the primary way in which people create and consume stories. Reel Women is a terrific group dedicated to promoting Austin, Texas area filmmakers. Though ostensibly focused on women filmmakers, everyone benefits from Reel Women- male and female, young and old alike. Sherry Mills, the organizer of RW, works tirelessly to promote local artists, connect them with resources, inform and inspire them with expert guests. She also organizes Luna Fest, which gives filmmakers an opportunity to create, present, and promote work to a huge base of fans. The types of stories that are told with Reel Women's help include important documentaries, and cutting-edge narrative drama, plus short films of all types, aimed at both entertaining, and cutting the teeth of the next generation of storytellers. Reel Women is a valuable resource for the Austin arts community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've been to several meetings and special events hosted by Reel Women, and worked with Sherry on several occasions. I run a site called www.texasfilmscene.com, so I am in touch with other filmmakers, and I know how much they like and appreciate RW.

Over ten years ago when I moved to Austin, Reel Women was the first organization I joined as a budding filmmaker. They were extremely influential and supportive as I was starting out. They gave me the push I needed to believe in myself and my work. I've since been involved helping with give workshops, as a speaker and an overall supporter of the work they do. I wouldn't be where I am in my career without them.

Reel Women was the first film group I joined as a budding filmmaker. They encouraged me to push myself and get my work out into the world. They provided resources, workshops and tools to become a better filmmaker. And in turn, I'm beyond grateful.

Reel Women is a great asset to men and women in Austin, Texas. Their meet and greets gave me a place to network with other professionals and gain insight into the film business. Their workshops teach a wide range of information dealing with film production. If you are in the film industry, I highly reccommend you be a part of Reel Women.
