Throughout 2022, we’ll be meeting colleagues from other WIFT International Chapters, and hearing about women’s experience in the industry right across the globe. This is a great way to connect with women working in the business in other countries.
First up, Italia! What are the challenges they have faced? Have they come up with strategies and solutions that we might learn from? Or, perhaps they have learned something from us?
On Thursday 13th January at 7pm Irish Time (8pm Italian Time) we will be hosting a special Coffee Chat with the President and Founder of Women in Film, TV & Media Italia, Writer/Producer Kissy Dugan. Join WFT for an informal chat over Zoom, cameras on, grab a coffee, or wine if the mood strikes you, and join us for this online discussion.
(This event is for up-to-date WFT Members only).
