Women Make Movies offers a Workshop Series each Spring and Fall to provide valuable and practical information about the business and financial aspects of video and filmmaking. The low-cost workshops are geared to both emerging and established independent film and video makers. Conducted by a range of highly experienced and successful professionals in the independent film and video industry, the classes offer valuable information and networking opportunities.

Workshops vary slightly with every series, as we invite new instructors to speak and try our best to keep up with the most current industry issues. However, the list below is a good representation of topics covered:

  • Proposal Writing + Fundraising Overview

  • Budgeting Sense
  • Funder Panels
  • Sample Tape Review Clinics
  • Distribution and Marketing Overview
  • Film Festivals
