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 the McMinville Short Film Festival and BendFilm, as well as organizations such as Catalyst Film Collective, Open Signal, Rose City Comic Con, and the National Association of Women in Film.

Make sure to join our Instagram and Facebook 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.

Annual  Programming 

Monthly Happy Hours
Every month Women in Film creates networking events where members connect, chat about their current projects, and learn about the local film scene. Each month’s event is hosted at a different bar or venue around the city. These events are free and open to anyone!

Rise Member Screening
Women in Film celebrates the talent of our local female & non-binary filmmakers creating a night of WIF Members Showcase Screening in partnership with Catalyst Film Collective and their members. 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. 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!

Check our socials for deadline submission dates which are normally around early Summer.

Holiday Party
In November, Women in Films starts the holiday season with a party for its members with music, appetizers, drinks plus a silent auction. Our largest event of the year! It’s your chance to network with the entire WIF PDX community, celebrate achievements together as an organization, and announce our newly elected board of directors.
