WOMEN IN FILM AND ENTERTAINMENT
Early last month Carla Buckingham and Cookie Greenwood set up an organisation called WIF&E (Women in Film and Entertainment)
WIF&E is a platform to help promote, inspire and innovate women who are just starting out in the creative industry no matter what age.
What Is WIF&E and why is it different from other organisations?
This organisation is for beginner’s who are just starting out in the world of TV, film (any format, any length, any genre) or music and for intermediate’s who have hit a brick wall with no where to turn.
This is an opportunity for women to come together and to change the future of the creative world by connecting professional women who actively work in the creative industry with those who need guidance, mentorships, and help you towards a goal.
Why is WIF&E non-profitable?
Starting out can be challenging in any job, not knowing who to talk to or how to perfect your craft and getting the right guidance can sometimes be costly. Networking opportunity’s may also be missed if funds are not available.
There are many organisations out there and although they are all amazing, most of them run by charities which means overheads.
WIF&E is not a charity it is an ‘unincorporated association’ which means it was set up to create a free networking community.
This means you don’t have to be a member to browse the website so this allows you
• Promote your work for free.
• Have easy access to links, events and networking.
• Get invitations for webinars with professionals for free.
• Get professional guidance at no cost.
