WIFTA PSA PROGRAM & WIFTA MENTORSHIP PROGRAMS… NOW SEEKING APPLICATIONS
The 2013 WIFTA PSA and Mentorship Programs are revving up! The nonprofit WIFTA will be producing a PSA this year for a nonprofit called 9 to 5, which is dedicated to helping low income women in the workplace to find work and fight for their rights. We will also be shooting a promotional video to commemorate the organization’s upcoming 40th anniversary! The PSA and promotional video shoots will provide an opportunity for WIFTA members who want more experience with production to obtain it and for the participants who want a mentor to find one because they will be working with professionals who make TV / Film / Video projects day-in and day-out.
