Mission Statement

Women in Film and Television Germany (WIFT Germany) is a non-profit organization of professional women dedicated to advancing, supporting, promoting, and celebrating the professional development and achievements of women involved in the German Film, Television, and Digital Media industries.
Membership is open to all women working in the Film, Television, and Digital Media industries, including those temporarily working in Germany, who are recommended by Women in Film and Television members in good standing. We encourage representation from all of the creative, technical, administrative, and service fields that sustain these production
communities. Organizations are able to join as Corporate Associates.

WIFT Germany supports a wide range of opportunities for networking, education, and training. Our goal is to advance the status of women toward increasing leadership and management roles in the industry by:
· Facilitating collaboration and ongoing networking locally and internationally
· Providing career development workshops and seminars
· Celebrating and promoting awareness of women’s achievements, e.g. screenings and special events
· Advocating discussion of issues of concern to women, to assure fair and equitable opportunities in the industry
· Joining other industry organizations in programs and initiatives which support these goals
