NYWIFT has partnered with iWomanTV to showcase the work of our talented membership through our 5th annual online film festival. Members are invited to submit their short films, TV pilots and webisodes to the NYWIFT Shorts Festival!

Submission Guidelines:

  • Projects must be under 40 minutes long.
  • We will not accept projects completed prior to 2016.
  • The project must feature a current NYWIFT member in a key creative role. The NYWIFT member must be the person to submit the film to the festival. (If you are not yet a NYWIFT member, but would like to submit your project, email membership@nywift.org to join the organization.)
  • All participants must allow iWomanTV to host member’s content for 1-year on a non-exclusive basis. Members must also follow iWomanTV on social media as well as promote their film airing on iWomanTV.
