    Where to start? Hats off to the entire team at WIFMP for putting together such a fantastic lineup of films for their very first virtual screening. Our short film Dear Olivia screened online alongside 8 others with WIFMP, with a really thoughtful and inspiring message by Heidi Ward at the beginning and end of the show. We are all so grateful to have this opportunity with such a wonderful group of ladies, and what's even better, is our cast-crew were able to tune in from all over the world. We had so much fun watching the films and connecting with the other filmmakers via chat. It was such an honor to be a part of this festival. You gals rock! Thank you WIFMP!

    I really loved this festival! This year, it was online because of the COVID-19 pandemic. WIFM made sure that we were still able to celebrate our work with family, friends, and fans all over the world.
