My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Women in Film & Video Inc, Washington, DC, USA
For over 35 years, Women in Film & Video has played a major role in my professional and personal development. Most recently WIFV provided a seed fund grant for an independent project, Anim8Nature. The grant provided not only financial support but access to senior staff and members for consultation. This assistance has been invaluable to me.
I volunteered as a Board Member for two terms and facilitated an animators interest group for many years. This kind of exposure and involvement with the professional community is invaluable and provided many other opportunities for others in the industry.
WIFV does much more than just help its members. Virtually all WIFV programming is available to the public and the Membership Directory provides access to detailed contact information for hundreds of media professional. Events like the Kids World Film Festival introduce children to independent films they might not see as well as provides media literacy training.
I have never been involved with a non-profit that has provided an educational, networking environment that has attracted so many talented, conscientious professionals so willing to share their expertise and support each other.
