I am now a proud member of the very cool organization known as New York Women in Film and Television. This feels like a moderately big deal, only because the application process is kind of involved (I had to provide references! And they actually contacted my references!)
NYWIFT is best known for their Writer’s Lab screenplay workshop, which I love because it takes place over one weekend — a time span single working moms can actually work with. In general, they support women filmmakers and writers and other industry professionals in lots of practical and creative ways, boosting their work and connecting them with opportunities. I’m psyched to be a part of it!
