Opportunites for Women in Film
Women Make Movies is an awesome non-profit media arts organization that provides distribution services, fiscal sponsorship, low-cost media workshops and information services for women in the film industry, with a special emphasis on women of color. Women can especially benefit when it comes to fundraising, a hurdle most independent filmmakers experience with their projects. Click here for more information on WMM.
New York Women in Film & Television (NYWIFT) is another great non-profit organization that offers support for women in film, television and digital media. They provide training and grants to women in the industry through a variety of funding programs. Our own Roz Sohnen has been involved with NYWIFT for quite some time.

I'll end this post with one of my favorite quotes from a female director:
"If there's specific resistance to women making movies, I just choose to ignore that as an obstacle for two reasons: I can't change my gender, and I refuse to stop making movies." - Kathryn Bigelow
