My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Women in Film & Video Inc, Washington, DC, USA
I joined the Board of WIFV in 2012 to give back to this wonderful community of media makers that has made such a difference in my own career in television. One of my favorite events each year is the Kids World Film Festival which gives students throughout the region the opportunity to develop their critical viewing skills while watching films from around the world. Some of our most accomplished members make classroom visits to talk about their work and prepare students for the event. Highlights of our most recent Festival included a special visit from a woman filmmaker from Oman and an animated film from Norway about a young girl who triumphs over neighborhood bullies. The KWFF is a very special event for students, educators and volunteers, and WIFV makes it possible.
