About Your Chapter/History

Women in Film and Television NSW is committed to improving the status of women, both on and off the screen, by supporting and advancing women working in the film, television and related screen industries. We are a membership based non-profit organisation.

In 1982 a group of women, committed to improving the position and representation of women in the film and television industries, established Women in Film and Television NSW. WIFT recognises the professional excellence achieved by women in all areas of the industry, providing a unique forum for communication, professional development and networking.
