Marketing often takes the backseat in the creative process, and WIFVNE wants to put it up front to support your stories and projects. Two of the top questions WIFVNE receives year-round are How to fundraise for films and passion projects, and How to market those projects once completed.
During the WIFT-US/WIFVNE event: Fundraising Beyond the Crowdfunding in July 2021, more than eighty people attended a two-hour discussion. Panelist Christine Merser, Managing Partner of Blue Shoe Strategy, and a WIFVNE Corporate Member, challenged attendees to think differently about their marketing efforts, as marketing often is the last thought on the filmmaker's mind. It's a huge gap in filmmaking. The result: filmmakers' projects are not being seen. Christine's action-driven suggestions inspired a large percentage of the attendees to contact her directly for her ideas and expertise. As a result, Blue Shoe Strategy and WIFVNE have come together to launch the WIFT Marketing Circle to give filmmakers the toolbox to do their marketing.
The WIFT Marketing Circle will provide information, expertise, and tools to market projects from inception to post-completion. And all at an affordable price. The WIFT Marketing Circle includes:
All of these events and resources will be available to participants in the WIFT Marketing Circle. WIFVNE members and members of WIFT-US chapters will receive the discounted monthly rate of $15.

WIFVNE is confident our members will gain insight, action elements, and specific support in marketing as a foundation for filmmaking.
