    WIFVNE's motto is Changing the Lens -- and for this event, that lens is on you.  Many members are open to work, actively looking for freelance work, contemplating changing jobs, educating themselves, developing their passions, and planning for productions. What are you focused on?

    Join WIFVNE President Alecia Orsini for this networking session. Let's lift each other up, share resources, put forth ideas, provide feedback, and make connections.

    Prior to this event, WIFVNE strongly recommends that all members update their Member Profile in the Member Directory, so connections can become future collaborators!


    Alecia Orsini is a prominent voice in the region’s film community as President of Women in Film and Video of New England. She also uses her marketing and development skills at NPR station WCAI, a service of GBH. In 2020 she was honored as an “Imaginnaire” by Imagine Magazine given for creative vision, leadership and commitment to excellence within the film industry.

    Some writers talk about creating connections with their characters so deep that the characters feel like real people. But how do you bring memorable, three-dimensional characters to life enough to make that connection?
