About Women Make Movies

Women Make Movies was founded in 1972 to address the mis- and under-representation of women in the media industry. The nonprofit organization works with women directors and producers on the production, distribution, and promotion of films by and about women. It offers distribution services, working with entities--such as museums, educational institutions, and nonprofits--that seek non-commercial, educational media. Women Make Movies also provides a production assistance program, which includes workshops focused on video and filmmaking, as well as fiscal sponsorship opportunities.

Women Make Movies interns work in a variety of areas, including distribution, management and administration, marketing, production, research, and social media. Interns gain experience working in the film industry while also promoting women.


Open to undergraduate and graduate students focusing on Africana Studies, Communications, Film, LGBTQ Studies, Media, and Women’s Studies. Must be enrolled in a college or university. Non-US citizens are eligible.
