Imagine living in the United States as a woman in the early 1900’s and not having the right to vote, own property, drive a car or have a job.   The Documentary created by Women In Film and Francis Rocks Productions illustrates the hardships women went through to not only move mountains for the right to vote, but to kick start the women’s movement for equal rights.

This event will celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Women’s Suffrage Movement in Pennsylvania with the Premiere of the documentary – Trailblazers of the Suffrage Movement – Celebrating 100 Years.  Hear stories  from the descendants of the suffrage movement – their stories, photos and documentation.  Watch the documentary as local women discuss the history of the women’s movement and what the future holds.

VIP Reception              5:30 pm – Meet the interview participants.

General Admission:      6:15 pm – Appetizers

PSA Program Qualifications & Criteria For PSA Submissions

 

The PSA Submission Process will begin again soon.  At that time, we will ask for submissions from our local non-profit community to complete an application for review by our PSA Committee.  Once the applications have been reviewed, three are selected to give an in-person presentation to the committee.  From that, one non-profit organization is chosen to have a PSA produced for them.

Training for the PSA Production Team will begin after the submission process ends.   If you are interested in learning more about this process, please email us at info@wifmpit.org.

The process will include learning the various positions on the crew, learning the WIFM PSA process, learning how you can participate and more.
