There are several upcoming events in the New York City area that should be on the radar for all established and aspiring female filmmakers. These events offer an excellent opportunity to network, learn and support fellow women in TV and film. From festivals and conferences, to funding panels, round-tables and screenings – these are events you don’t want to miss!
On Sunday, March 17, 2019 at MOMA PS2, the inaugural Black Women Film Conference co-organized by The New Negress Film Society will take place. This is a treat, particularly for Black / African-American female filmmakers because this community-building event will feature an exchange of filmmaking strategies and offer a space for our voices and experiences.
Next up, on Thursday March 21, 2019, the NYC Women Filmmakers (NYCWF) will hold a Creative Financing Panel at the NYU Tisch School of the Arts. This is another opportunity for knowledge exchange, collaboration, resource sharing and support for female filmmakers. This event is particularly useful for budgeting and learning strategies to fund your next project.
On Saturday March 23, 2019, the Girl Power Film + Media Summit curated by Imagine This Productions offers a day of discussions, panels, film screenings, workshops, and a dinner party. This event celebrates Women’s History Month, and also serves as an inspirational launchpad for the future of women in the film and television industries.
