Work-in-Progress Screenings

WIPS provides a great opportunity for local and visiting women filmmakers to screen their unfinished films to an audience and get valuable feedback. It is a time of honest and constructive feedback aimed at helping the filmmakers get to the next stage of completing and distributing the film. Contact us if you want to screen your work to a WIPS. We’ll do our best to schedule it during our HWF time.

SHERO by Lymari Graciano

April 23, 2013 @ 6:30 pm


Unlike the every day super hero, Shero battles more than just evil villains. Shero battles broken heels, runs in his stockings, broken nails, and the scorn of the public. Uncomfortable in men’s clothing, all Shero wants to do is wear a dress while kicking ass. Is that so much to ask? Shero questions if the clothes really do make the man.

FINDING KUKAN work-in-progress fundraising trailerby Robin Lung

February 29, 2012 @ 6:30 pm

The fundraising trailer is often the first piece of an independently produced film to “go public.” It is required for many big film grants and a valuable tool for crowd-sourcing campaigns that can help raise production funds to complete your film. But how can you put together a successful one with limited footage? What should you include and what should you leave out? Robin Lung invites two seasoned filmmakers to address these questions before screening two work-in-progress pieces from her own documentary-in-progress FINDING KUKAN and eliciting feedback from participants. Feedback collected at the workshop will be used by Lung to edit a third work-in-progress piece.


Award-winning filmmaker Kimberlee Bassford will open the workshop by sharing her experience screening numerous work-in-progress pieces as a panelist for a major film grant. Shirley Thompson, the editor of many work-in-progress pieces that have developed into nationally broadcast films, will give practical tips on how to put together your own fundraising trailer.
