As International Women’s Day approaches, the New York Film Academy (NYFA) is excited to announce that we’re giving away a number of tickets to a lucky few NYFA students at the New York City campus to attend the Women’s International Film & Arts Festival (WIFF). Though this year is the first time the festival is held in New York City, WIFF is celebrating its 12th anniversary.
Launched in Miami, WIFF is a leading international film festival and two-day conference. This year, it will screen more than 40 films made by or about women in addition to hosting panels, lectures, and conversations about the state of the industry.
The New York Film Academy is hosting a raffle for students to enter for a chance attend the red carpet premiere of Culture of Fear on March 8. Set in a dystopian future, the film examines the abuse of power after the internet is banned from society. Golden Globe nominee Malcolm McDowell, Steven Bauer, and director Kayla Tabish will also attend the premiere.
NYFA raffle winners will also get a chance to attend WIFF’s Women in Film and Entertainment Conference. Some panels will look into what happens as women navigate from film school to film set, while others will provide tips for how to build a successful pitch. The full agenda is available on the WIFF site. For students who’d like to attend, there are tickets available for purchase as well. You can learn more here.
To continue the celebration of Women’s History Month even beyond International Women’s Day, NYFA is sharing daily #WomenOfNYFA tweets on social media. Every day throughout the month, a new graduate will be showcased via the @NYFA account. Tune in to learn more about our illustrious alumnae.
