On behalf of
the WIFTI Board of Directors, it is my pleasure to confirm that the 2006 Short
Film Showcase Celebrating International Women's Day was a resounding success!
The 2007 edition promises to be even better and larger in
scope. Excellent short film submissions for inclusion from the
worldwide membership is the key!
As such, this
email is extremely important...
once again collaborate with To The Point: Women Telling Tales Through
Media (TTP), the short film program presented by New York Women in Film
& Television and the Hamptons International Film Festival. It is an
accomplished and prestigious event in itself and, it will be one of
the gateways for participation in the 2007 WIFTI Short Film
proactive distributing the information contained herein to your members, boards,
etc - call and encourage your best local filmmakers, distributors, film
schools, etc, to submit their short films. It's a busy world and many talented
filmmakers missed the call for submissions last year...
It is in
our joint interest to get the word out to one and all that the CALL FOR
SUBMISSIONS HAS BEGUN. The seven films selected for the Showcase in 2006
were screened in 18 cities in 5 countries, raising the work and profile of the
participant filmmakers significantly. (see
www.wifti.org). Both the TTP series
and the Showcase are a wonderful opportunity for filmmakers and clearly,
WIFT Chapters are eager to screen the best short films by women worldwide in
