Women's Weekend Film Challenge works for
gender equity by
creating opportunities
for women and non-binary people to bring their leadership, talents, and stories to the forefront of the
film and television industry.


WWFC was founded by Katrina Medoff and Tracy Sayre in 2017 to address the lack of diversity behind the camera and on screen. The organization is best known for its signature film challenge that has produced 30 short films with more than 700 professional female filmmakers. In 2020, WWFC established a virtual workshop series that provides career advice from the top women of Hollywood. 

Recently, WWFC launched a brand-new pilot accelerator designed both to help emerging writers advance their careers and to increase the representation of women and non-binary people in television. This program is geared toward writers with strong, completed pilot scripts who lack the industry connections to sell their series or break into the writers room.
