WIF-PDX is dedicated to supporting women in film and media, our membership is diverse and consists of both men and women, professionals and students. As an organization focused on professional development, the majority of our membership consists of professionals working in film and media.
We regularly partner with festivals such as POWFest, NW Filmmakers Festival, and the Portland Film Festival, and organizations such as NW Film Center, Open Signal, NW Documentary and the National Association of Women in Film.
Make sure to join our Facebook Group for the latest updates on our events. The events are usually open to the public and may be at no charge, or reduced rate to members.
Every two months Women in Film creates networking and educational events where members connect with area professionals, learn the latest trends in film and video and grow professionally through our discussions with industry leaders and speakers. WIF provides wine and snacks and an opportunity to network following the programing. Bring your questions and your business cards!
Oregon Doc Camp
Oregon Doc Camp was originally spearheaded by Women in Film-Portland and is now an official program of NW Documentary. To find out more about Oregon Doc Camp please visit the NW Documentary website: https://nwdocumentary.org/doc-camp
Every September Women in Film celebrates the talent of our local female filmmakers creating a night of WIF Members Showcase Screening. The event starts with an opening reception and continues with screenings and a director Q&A discussion to follow. Submissions must be from active members and 7 minutes or less. Entries can be a clip, a work in progress, a finished piece, a doc. It can be narrative, experimental, animated… whatever you’re pouring your heart into!
Stay tuned for deadline submission dates which are normally around early Summer.
