Sarah Kalil is the President of WIFTV. She has served in this position since 2015, and has sat on the Board of Directors since 2013. In a career that has involved many different twists and turns – from majoring in genetics to practicing corporate law to producing films and coaching trailblazers – the one flame that has constantly burned true is Sarah’s love for stories. If there’s one thing to be said about the people – and especially women – who work in entertainment, it’s that their stories aren’t easy. They take commitment, and love, and a willingness to enter unknown territory over and over and over again. Sarah’s own path is a testament to her own ability to navigate the unknown, and she is committed to supporting others to do the same. To quote Samwise Gamgee, from The Lord of the Rings:

“It's like in the great stories Mr. Frodo, the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn't want to know the end because how could the end be happy…Those were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something even if you were too small to understand why. But I think Mr. Frodo, I do understand, I know now folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going because they were holding on to something…That there’s something good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it’s worth fighting for.”
