Invest in changing the narrative of whose stories are told and who is telling them. 

Hawai‘i Women in Filmmaking is a feminist nonprofit organization committed to gender justice in filmmaking through an intersectional lens. We are a creative and safe space where film and media-makers connect, create, mentor, and inspire current and future generations of women to explore and pursue careers in the field of filmmaking.

Donations to an organization like Hawaiʻi Women in Filmmaking represent not just financial support but a profound investment in culture, education, and empowerment. For Hawaiʻi Women in Filmmaking, such contributions can have a multifaceted impact, enabling the organization to expand its reach and deepen its impact on the community it serves.
Firstly, financial donations can significantly enhance educational programs and workshops offered by Hawaiʻi Women in Filmmaking. These programs are pivotal in providing women and girls with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to express themselves through the medium of film. By supporting these educational endeavors, donors help in fostering a more inclusive and diverse filmmaking community in Hawaiʻi, ensuring that underrepresented voices are heard and valued. This not only enriches the local film industry but also encourages a broader cultural dialogue that can lead to societal change.
Moreover, donations can assist in the acquisition of cutting-edge equipment and resources that are essential for filmmaking. This includes everything from cameras and editing software to sound equipment and lighting. Access to such tools can be a significant barrier for emerging filmmakers. By alleviating this obstacle, Hawaiʻi Women in Filmmaking can offer its participants the means to produce professional-quality work, thereby leveling the playing field and opening up more opportunities for women in the industry.

Lastly, financial support can enable Hawaiʻi Women in Filmmaking to create a more robust network of mentors, industry professionals, and alumni. This network is invaluable for participants seeking guidance, internships, or job opportunities within the film industry. Building such a community not only helps individual filmmakers but also strengthens the industry as a whole, promoting diversity, innovation, and collaboration.

In summary, donations to Hawaiʻi Women in Filmmaking are an investment in the future of film, education, and gender equity in Hawaiʻi. Through such support, the organization can continue to break down barriers, educate and empower the next generation of female filmmakers, and contribute to a more diverse and inclusive film industry.
