PITTSBURGH, August 2013 - Women In Film and Media Pittsburgh will play host to the 2014 Women In Film and Television International (WIFTI) Summit May 16, 17 and 18,, 2014, which draws hundreds of women from the 40 chapters located throughout the world to discuss filmmaking issues and attend panel discussions and screenings.
“This is a huge thrill for our chapter to be the host of this summit and show the world what Pittsburgh is capable of in the film industry. We will be drawing from our local film and television community to form our panel discussions and showcase Pittsburgh at the same time,” said Faith Dickinson, President and Founder of Women In Film and Media Pittsburgh and WIFTI Board member.
The 2014 Summit will draw attendees from around the world as well as local interested filmmakers. The Summit will include panel discussions, screenings, education sessions, networking events, Opal Awards presentation and other events.
Our Bi-annual Summit was held in Washington, DC in December 2012 and drew Film, Television and New Media participants from New Zealand, Sweden, London, Mexico and across the United States and Canada.
