Women in Film and Media has a robust Volunteer Program where interested persons are provided the opportunity to contribute their skills to further WIFM’s mission. Volunteers may work with WIFM’s Executive Council and Committees throughout the year to organize its signature events and community outreach efforts, or join its Public Service Announcement Program to produce PSAs for non-profit organizations.

Volunteers have the opportunity to either mentor production crew and talent, or be mentored in their field of interest by Pittsburgh’s film and media professionals. Volunteers may also participate in community outreach under the supervision of Committee Chairs.
