The NYCWF Network is an active, thriving community of filmmakers where you can learn, grow, and connect. NYCWF has built a commitment to women, non-binary, and GNC creators through 100+ events, attracting 6000 members over 5 years – but what we offer isn’t only knowledge, it’s connection through an inclusive and supportive community. We’ve connected hundreds of filmmakers and built opportunities in-person, online and through referrals.

Some perks of membership depending on the level you choose include:

  • Build your filmmaking community
  • Apply for microgrants
  • Find a Mentor
  • Find and share knowledge and opportunities
  • Expand your knowledge with our new events and recordings of past events
  • Join the movement for gender parity in the film industry
  • Amplify & provide opportunities for underrepresented filmmakers

Yes. We’re transitioning our community off of Facebook to combat privacy concerns, and to allow the organization to grow. Our new platform is called the NYCWF Network and we’re super excited for you to join us!

Both Filmmakers & Veterans have access to the exact same NYCWF Network and benefits. We often get requests for referrals for filmmakers within our community to hire. Some of those requests are for high level positions. Thus, we encourage filmmakers with 10+ years of experience to sign up at the Veteran level to help us easily identify mid to late career professionals to recommend and refer to our partners.

We also plan to launch our mentorship program soon and invite all our Veteran members to give back and mentor an emerging filmmaker from our community. We were founded on the principle of women helping women and firmly believe that meaningful mentorship rewards both the mentor and mentee.

If you’d like to post a paying job to our community, you can do so here without creating an account. You can also join the Network as a Business and create accounts for your employees. Learn more here.
