AFI Directing Workshop for Women Now Accepting Applications for 2019

Applications have opened for the 2019-20 cycle of the prestigious AFI Directing Workshop for Women (DWW).

The DWW is a hands-on, tuition-free training program committed to increasing the number of women working professionally as narrative screen directors. Since its inception in 1974, the DWW has graduated over 300 alumnae, creating robust network of female storytellers empowered to lend their voices to film and television in ever greater numbers. See the work of this year’s group of DWW filmmakers here.

Each year, the DWW provides eight gifted directors with immersive training and the support to complete a short film or digital series. The workshop experience includes classes in screen directing, professional development resources and inroads to the industry — all at no cost to participants. The DWW is open to women with three years or more of professional experience in the arts. While the program is tuition-free, participants are responsible for raising the funds for their projects
