+ - About

Women in Focus is an annual conference featuring a panel of the most prominent women in the film profession participating in an open discussion with students and the community regarding their personal experiences in the industry. 

These women have proven themselves not only as talented business women, but also as driven risk-takers, unafraid to challenge themselves to tell stories from their hearts, openly and honestly.  These women discuss the strengths of not having “egos bigger than the task at hand” and the problems of “forgetting to fight for ourselves” in the process of fighting for the movie and the other artists with whom they work.  They share their trials and triumphs, clearly showing themselves as outstanding role models for any young person seeking to enter the highly competitive entertainment industry.
