Tennessee Women in Film and Media, Inc. (TWiFM) launched as a nonprofit organization with a commitment to creating opportunities for women in the film, television, and all screen-based media. We champion their accomplishments throughout the State of Tennessee and the region and provide opportunities to
screen their work and offer a valuable network for the exchange of ideas and resources.
Through membership in TWiFM, our members belong to Women in Film
& Television International ( WIFTI). WIFTI encompasses thousands of industry
women in more than 20 countries on six continents.
Historically speaking, In April of 2014 seeds were planted by a group of ten
women to design a complimentary, women driven and supported organization
for the film, television and new media industiries within and outside the
the state of Tennessee inclusive of all media professionals or those employed in associated fields seeded the idea of forming a statewide.
Tennessee Women in Film and Media (TWIFM) is an umbrella organization with a global reach in the film, television & media industry. We will continue acknowledging works that promote proactive images of women to the public, reduce gender bias and empower all women in film and video to achieve their professional potential and screen-based media industries and provide real access to funding and distribution channels as well as educate through practical learning programs and mentorships. We are fully committed to supporting the achievements and success of our membership and those in a global position to represent us in a positive light.
We are proud of our collaborations with other like-minded groups including WIFT Nashville, WIFT Memphis and North Carolina WIFT. Whichever WIF organization you are associated with, you are welcome here.
TWIFM is open to women and men who support the efforts of women to strive for equity of pay, position, and opportunities. Ten women founded the organization, brainstormed the bylaws and built the framework for the future success of TWIFM.
Thank you and Welcome.
