About the Ticket Supplier: AFI Directing Workshop for WomenFor over decades, AFI's Directing Workshop for Women (DWW) has been the premier institution working to increase the number of women behind the camera. In 2007, women accounted for only 6% of all directors in Hollywood. 22% of films released in 2007 employed no women directors, executive producers, cinematographers, or editors.
The DWW was created to provide an opportunity for talented women to be educated and mentored by top industry professionals. A highly competitive program, only 8 participants are selected each year from hundreds of applicants.
