The Womxn’s Film & Video Network, initiated by the Winnipeg Film Group in January 2015, is dedicated to supporting the women who work in film and video in Manitoba. The group is open to directors, producers, writers, crew members, and media arts administrators (etc) who are established, mid-career or emerging. We encourage those who are looking to start out in independent film and video to please join. No experience necessary! No age minimum or maximum.
Our goal is to create a welcoming space for people who identify as women (cis or trans) or as non-binary, living in Manitoba who currently work in film/video/media arts, or those that aspire to. The group is here to provide networking opportunities, enable connections, offer help, develop skills, find crew members, discuss opportunities, share info on potential jobs and to support one another. The casual meetups are FREE.
To be added to the email list or if you have any questions or comments please contact either of the Womxn’s Film and Video Network Coordinators: Melissa Van Soelen: firstname.lastname@example.org or Allison Stevens: email@example.com

WFVN FREE Peer to Peer Workshops – Filmmakers Series!
We’re so excited to announce these FREE peer-to-peer workshops, organized by WFVN!
We will be covering some filmmaking basics, including camera operation, lighting, sound and editing (dates below). We will all get a chance to go out and shoot something that we can later edit and eventually have a short film!
CAMERA / LIGHTS: Sun. April 28, 1-4 pm, Black Lodge (3rd Floor) – Completed and Conquered!
SOUND: Sun. May 19, 1-4 pm, Black Lodge Room – 3rd Floor
This hands on peer to peer workshop will include the fundamentals of audio which is key to making great recordings. During these 3-hours, participants of the WFVN will learn about the basic principles behind sound, acoustics, microphones and digital and analog audio recording. If you’re new to working with audio or want more practice, you are welcome here! Guest instructor: Karen Ramoto!

All workshops will all be held at the Winnipeg Film Group (100 Arthur St.), but in different rooms / outside.
There’s no such thing as a silly question here! And yes, we will have snacks!
The event is free and open to people who identify as women (cis or trans) or as non-binary.
Do you create film or video or want to?
Do you live in Manitoba?
Do you identify as a woman?
If you answered yes to these questions than you should definitely come out for one of the Women’s Film and Video Network meet-ups!
They are free and are a great way to meet others in the community.
Please join us for casual mix-and-mingle networking sessions. This group, designed to create and support community, is specifically for women working in film and video in Manitoba.
We meet at the Winnipeg Film Group’s Black Lodge Studio, Room 304 at 100 Arthur Street. Meet-ups are always FREE to attend and are open to newcomers.
We will mingle, introduce ourselves, and discuss upcoming projects, issues, and how to develop our skills and our network. The direction this group goes is up to you!
If you have any questions, want to volunteer or can RSVP please call Melissa at 204-295-3456 ext. 110 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
