As part of its gender-based initiatives, which we applaud, the NZFC has awarded WIFT NZ operating funding at the same level as the other guilds for the first time in WIFT's history. Not only that, but as long as we meet our grant conditions, this funding is guaranteed for three years so you, our members (now over 600 of you) can be sure that we will be here to continue to support you as we tackle the gender equality issues we face. Many of you attend our workshops, some of which are now over-subscribed and therefore are moving to bigger venues. If you currently don't come along maybe now is the time - remember the WIFT programme is designed to increase your skills so you can compete effectively, and even if you don't need the specific content you definitely need to network to increase your chances of getting work and meeting potential collaborators!
We thank the NZFC and the team who support WIFT and all its members.
