The first WIF network (Women in Film LA) was established in Los Angeles in the 70’s as a reaction to male dominance in the film industry. Today, there are around 50 WIFT and WIFT-partner chapters on six continents – all working for the same goal: gender balance in the industry.
WIFTI was established as the global network connecting all others to speak with one common voice. The strength of WIFTI is based on the strength coming from every member of every chapter all around the world. Together we make a change!
The three pillars that inspire the work of WIFTI are:
Connect all members
Share knowledge, experiences and industry information
