WIFT New South Wales
About WIFT New South Wales
On Thursday 13 December, WIFT NSW held the 2017-18 Annual General Meeting during which two special resolutions were unanimously passed. These resolutions approved the transformation of WIFT NSW from a stand-alone organisation into a NSW chapter nested within the national structure of WIFT Australia. This is an incredibly important moment in the history of WIFT NSW, a organisation founded in 1982 by a group of women determined to advocate for gender equality in the screen industry and an important step in solidifying WIFT Australia as our peak advocacy body.
The transition will take approximately six months and will be led by a Transition Sub-Committee made up of the outgoing WIFT NSW Executive members Megan Riakos, Lucy Fisher and Katrina Irawati Graham. During the transition period, the WIFT NSW chapter will continue to have a presence under WIFT Australia and NSW members will be consulted in 2019 on how best they would like the NSW Chapter to run. In the meantime, the NSW Chapter Interim Chair will be former President Megan Riakos. If you want to be a part of the WIFT NSW Chapter Interim Committee please contact email@example.com.

WIFT NSW is the peak advocacy body for Women in the screen industry in Australia with a specific aim: to achieve gender parity in the film industry through advocacy, education and support of female identifying filmmakers.
As a Not For Profit Organisation, we rely on funding grants and the generosity of donors to continue this important work. You can help us to continue to change the woeful statistics of female representation both in front of and behind the screens by making a tax deductible donation to our organisation.
