It's no secret that Women in Film and Video (WiFV) has the most amazing listserv and network in the biz. Need actors for a shoot same day? Send an email through the listserv and you'll have them in time. Need a piece of equipment on short notice? Send an email through the listserv and you'll have options. Need advice on a technical problem? Send an email through the listserv and you'll get multiple ideas backed up by your colleagues' experience with similar issues. Need contact info for a particular star? Send an email through the listserv and you'll get a response in minutes. You'll also find as many men who are members and active on the listserv as women. (Real men aren't embarrassed to join a women's organization!) Go to one of the workshops or seminars, and you'll find a wide demographic, from newbies just out of film school to seasoned producers, scriptwriters, directors, etc. This is THE resource for film and video professionals, with chapters across the country. Members are supportive of each other and not competition-phobic. This is the place to encounter colleagues with whom lyou can collaborate. I love WiFV! Have been a member off and on since 1984.

I've been a member of WIFV for decades and have found this to be the most caring, member-sensitive professional organization I belong to. What a great group to help us connect with one another, offer each other advice, provide leads for gigs, keep each other up-to-date on our industry and its technology, celebrate together, etc. etc. etc.!!! An example: when I was living and working in Zagreb in the 90s during the Bosnian conflict, going in and out of Sarajevo during the siege, I suddenly received an email from a WIFV member in the U.S. who had found my name through WIFV. She was looking for someone who knew the ropes for getting in and out of Sarajevo with some donations for a women's group there. We'd never met, but because she was a member of WIFV I had no hesitation in inviting her to stay with me and I would help her work through the intricacies of getting on board one of the UNPROFOR flights (about the only way to get in and out at that time). We became friends of course, and are still close to this day.
