2014 CHALLENGE FROM WIFTV PRESIDENT

by Rachelle Chartrand, posted on 2:05 PM, January 7, 2014

Hello,

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Women in Film and Television Vancouver, I would like to wish you a creative and abundant New Year!

2014 promises to be an incredible year for WIFTV, as it marks our 25th Anniversary. Stay tuned in the weeks and months ahead for exciting opportunities for you to join in on the celebration.

This time of year usually entails making and breaking resolutions, but in honor of our silver jubilee, I would like to present a challenge to you.

If you are a female filmmaker, no matter what, tell a story this year. Make it inspiring or provocative or both. Tell it as a film. Tell it as a TV series. Tell it as a web series. I donít care. Just tell it. No excuses.

If you are a man, tell a story with inspiring or provocative female characters! Tell it for your daughter. Tell it for your sister. Tell it for your grandmother. I donít care. Just tell it. No excuses.

If you are an actor, crew member, promoter, funder, distributor or production equipment provider, get involved with one of the above projects. Trust me. This is something you will want to be a part of.

And then, get out (or download) and support these projects!

Have a spectacular year,

Rachelle Chartrand

President, WIFTV
