DIRECTING WORKSHOP FOR WOMEN
Directing Workshop for Women (DWW) has been a major force in training women in narrative filmmaking since 1974.
Over 200 women have been given the opportunity to participate in this innovative and unique training program for tomorrow's directors.
Each year 8 women of diverse professional backgrounds are chosen to participate, selected from hundreds of applicants.
These women have the opportunity to direct a short film that will aid in their transition to directing feature film and television.
ome DWW alumnae include Lesli Linka Glatter (GREY'S ANATOMY, NUMB3RS, THE O.C.); Randa Haines (CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD, DANCE WITH ME); Victoria Hochberg (SEX AND THE CITY, ALLY MCBEAL); Neema Barnette (CIVIL BRAND, 7TH HEAVEN); Nancy Malone (JUDGING AMY, DAWSON'S CREEK); Maya Angelou (DOWN IN THE DELTA); Yelena Lanskaya (HIDDEN PLACES and THE COLT for Hallmark Channel); Tricia Brock (THE L WORD); and Kelly Martin (MYSTERY WOMAN for Hallmark Channel).
