MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

On behalf of WIFT Victoria, I hope everyone had a wonderful International Women’s Day. We hope you were able to not only celebrate women’s achievements, but also acknowledge the amazing women around you. Let’s continue celebrating and supporting women all throughout the year, not just for one day. ~ Margarita Ivanovsky

IN HER OWN VOICE

WIFT Victoria is proud to support Screen Vixens’ upcoming event, In Her Own Voice. This is a panel event that will discuss how far women in the screen industry have come and where to next. A group of female filmmakers with experience in front and behind the camera, as well as distribution and funding bodies, will provide valuable insights as to how we bring female voices and stories to the forefront in film and television.

Moderated by Michelle Brasier, the panel features:

Lee-Ann Woon, Madman Entertainment
Alyce Adams, Screen Australia
Magda Wozniak – Screenwriter

This is a FREE event. Unlike many other Screen Vixens events, it is open to EVERYONE, not just producers. Supported by Monster & Bear and WIFT Victoria.

DETAILS: 6:30pm, Wed 27 March @ Monster & Bear Studios: 13-19 Leslie Street, Brunswick
