WIF Sponsors Films By Two Local Filmmakers 


Every year at the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF), WIF Seattle sponsors a film in which a female filmmaker plays a critical role.  We've sponsored films by women from all over the world, but this year we're thrilled to be keeping things a little closer to home. We're proud to announce that we're sponsoring TWO narrative films:  Lucky Them (Megan Griffiths, director) and Sold (Jane Charles, producer), both by our own WIF members. To find out more, check out our headline article WIF Sponsors Films @SIFF and come on out to support these films!
