It's a career we all pursue for love rather than money or job security, but working in film and television is one of the most exciting avenues you can follow in life and WIFT would like to say thank you and well done to everyone who has supported us this year. You have attended our events, and participated in the debates and discussions, a significant number have joined for the first time, and better still many of you have renewed your membership.
Our collective power comes from a strong and dedicated membership base - and that wouldn't be possible without you all. No one said working in our industry would be easy - but the challenges, achievements and sheer fun of creating work for the big and small screen makes up for the hard grind sometimes.
New Zealand women have a powerful voice in the industry and a unique way of telling our stories. Let's continue to work together in 2015 and beyond to make sure that voice rings out loud and clear - from every production house to every funding decision meeting and to every credit roll.
WIFT wishes everyone the very best Xmas and New Year and good weather (!) for your summer film and tv projects. We look forward to celebrating your achievements in 2015.
