U.S. based Women Filmmakers — FEMALE FILMMAKERS INITIATIVE RESOURCE MAP- #SundanceInstitute #WIF

One of the many reasons we praise the work of Robert Redford remains the wonderful institution he founded: The Sundance Institute.

Sundance recently published a list of resources for women filmmakers.

We are proud to help spread the word.

We strongly recommend going directly to the site by clicking on the above link. Bookmark the link and every organization it links to.

This is a brief preview. The actual Sundance Institute link will provide a beautifully detailed map of resources with full descriptions and working links.

All PRAISE to the Sundance Institute, Women In Film and EVERY organization and group listed!

Get to WORK.
