Each year Women In Film and Media volunteer to produce a Public Service Announcement for a non-profit organization that helps women and children in the Pittsburgh area.
We are currently creating the script for the 2015 PSA, which will shoot in September. If you are interested in volunteering for the production of this PSA, please email us with your current resume and a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hair Peace Charities had been selected by WIFM for its PSA, which was completed in 2012. Hair Peace provides financial support for women who suffer traumatic hair loss due to chemotherapy, and need counseling and assistance purchasing a wig. Professional mentors for the PSA included the award winning advertising agency, Brunner, Inc; Chelle Robinson (“Black Dahlia”, “Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood”); John Rice (“Dumpster”; The Journey); and the late Amy Lamb (“One for the Money’, “Warrior”). Co-chairs for the PSA are Heidi Schlegel, Point Park University, and Jessica Pachuta, ‘Hear Me’ Project, Carnegie Mellon University.
All of Women in Film and Media’s PSA projects may be viewed in the PSA Archives. We encourage you to view our Public Service Announcements and other videos.
