We are thrilled to be releasing this new edition of our newsletter. We hope you find it engaging, and refreshing! I am also very pleased to be writing this message as your new WIFTA president. Alongside an amazing board of directors, I hope to use this opportunity to accomplish many exciting things. Our priorities are to engage with our members in a positive way and address our organization’s historical shortcomings. In order to do this I’d like to encourage people in all stages of their careers involved in the creative media & screen industries to consider becoming a member of WIFTA. Increasing our membership will ensure that we have a diversity of voices and are better able to represent, unify, and advocate for all women, femme-identifying and non-binary people in our industry.
In the coming months we will be reaching out to the creative community and our membership to hear about what you would like out of our organization. What does WIFTA mean to you? What do you expect it to do for you? I personally look forward to representing WIFTA and working with all our members, committees and the board of directors to continue supporting the talented people who work very hard within our film and television industry in Alberta.
Please feel free to reach out! I’d love to hear from you: firstname.lastname@example.org

We are very excited to announce that WIFTA has partnered with Voice of Albertans with Disabilities (VAD) to share their powerful Disability Awareness Presentation! The goal of this presentation is to break down barriers to accessibility and inclusion by creating awareness and understanding about people living with disabilities. The presenters themselves live with a disability, so they bring a personal perspective and experiences to the presentation through their own stories. Join us on Tuesday, December 7th from 12pm – 1:30pm MST and together we can create an inclusive and accessible place for people living with disabilities in our community.
