Testimonials

"I need to tell you all about Nathan ... He was introduced to me last month at the WIFT Wednesday Mingle & we interviewed him earlier today for a job with our new company. He was so excited about the opportunity, he went home this afternoon, practiced on a similar software package to what we are using, and brought his results on his PSP back to the meeting TONIGHT! That is what this organization is all about. He is going to be a perfect fit for us, and for him, it's a great start to his resume. Thank you WIFT for having so many mixing events where we can meet new faces in the production community!"

"The WIFT grant I received helped to make my first feature film, Hope for a Thorn, possible. As a microbudget, student film, I relied heavily on the Orlando community - using local cast, crew, and resources to accomplish what at times seemed an impossible feat. Thankfully, WIFT understood my vision and offered their generous support. I couldn't have done it without them."

"…being involved in Women in Film has paid off. I can't thank you enough for taking a chance on me, I will never forget it, because Women in Film really has changed my life! It's given me the confidence that I needed to jump from student to professional. So thank you!"
