WIFTA Gala 

2019 WIFTA Gala - Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta 

The annual WIFTA gala is WIFTA’s primary fundraising vehicle. Its success directly affects our ability to maintain the organization and to provide educational and informational programs, workshops and events for our membership and the Atlanta community. We also honor women and men who have significantly contributed to the TV/film/media industry in Georgia behind the scenes as well as in front of the camera. We also award scholarships to current and new film student members who have applied through our scholarship program during the event.
