Women Make Movies

"Established in 1972 to address the under representation and misrepresentation of women in the media industry, Women Make Movies is a multicultural, multiracial, non-profit media arts organization which facilitates the production, promotion, distribution and exhibition of independent films and videotapes by and about women. The organization provides services to both users and makers of film and video programs, with a special emphasis on supporting work by women of color. Women Make Movies facilitates the development of feminist media through an internationally recognized Distribution Service and a Production Assistance Program." [1]


"Women Make Movies is a non-profit organization as determined by the IRS code 501(c)(3). While earned income from the WMM distribution service has continued to increase steadily since 1983 and currently provides 85% of our overall operational budget, we are deeply grateful to the wonderful government, corporate and private foundations which support us. We thank them for their continuing commitment to women's independent media.

"We are especially grateful for the Electronic Media and Film Program of the New York State Council on the Arts which funded the development of this website and has supported the work of Women Make Movies for almost 30 years." [2]
