    Indie Women’s International Film Festival in Brooklyn Launches Kickstarter Campaign.

    Imagine This Women’s International Film Festival launched a campaign for the 2nd annual ITWIFF goal is to raise $10,000 to help fund the cost of the festival and bring filmmakers from around the world to Brooklyn.

    Please check out our campaign and help bring more traffic. Thanks in advance.

    My mother and I launched Imagine This Women’s International Film Festival (ITWIFF) with the aim to celebrate and empower independent and aspiring women filmmakers from around the world. We held our first film festival at Brooklyn’s Wythe Hotel on November 12-13, 2017. The two-day event featured 29 shorts and 6 feature films from female storytellers across 15 countries, an Opening Night/Mixer and an Award Ceremony. Among the festival selections, 8 films made their international debut and 5 were shown in the US for the first time. A number of films touched on themes related to personal struggles within political and social conflicts across the world.

    According to a study by the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego State University, there remains a substantial gender disparity in the mainstream film industry, with female directors working on only 7% of the top 250 movies of 2014. The study showed that even among independent films at 23 film festivals from 2014-15, women made up only one-fourth of directors and directors, writers, producers, editors, and cinematographers.

    And we are here to help break the statistics. Submissions have recently closed for the 2017 ITWIFF and the festival has received over 200 films from over 35 countries.

    So happy to see your efforts toward females in film. We are currently in pre-production starring women, produced and directed by women.
