Support Parent Filmmakers
Sign up for our newsletter to learn how to bring a Wee Wagon to your set and how you can help make the industry more family-friendly!
A place to meet, share and have a good time.
Moms-in-Film hosts bi-monthly meetings for parents and carers of all gender identities in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington DC.
You can bring the kids.

At some of these meet-ups, we'll hold informal Q&A sessions with successful parent-filmmakers, who will tell us how it's done. (The answer? They never shower, eat, or sleep.) Can't make it? Don't worry: you can listen to our conversations on our podcast.

Want to offer childcare at your film festival or on your set? We can help! We launched the industry's first mobile childcare unit at SXSW. Find out more about the Wee Wagon Project.

We also host informal sharing opportunities for your works-in-progress (rough cuts, screenplays, pitches). We're gentle with our feedback, because bullying is bad.

It's such an incredible opportunity to have a film in a major festival but not only do you take time off from work to attend these events, but you also have to find local childcare or travel with a babysitter so that you can network and promote the film. All of this can be prohibitively expensive which is why the Wee Wagon Project is one of many great solutions by Moms-in-Film for so many of us mothers in the filmmaking field.

Our Mission
We energize the careers of mothers in film and television by providing community, funding and advocacy. We stand up for gender equality and fight for a more diverse industry.

We show up for each other (invite us to your screenings!)

We hire each other (use us to find your cast and crew.)

We say please and thank you, because we're moms.

We think dads are great. We welcome parents and carers of all ages and gender identities.

Moms-in-Film in the news
"Is Child Care the Answer to Hollywood's Gender Gap?"
"There is a clear and direct link between gender equality and family-friendly practices that is easily overlooked"
The Hollywood Reporter
"Simply by adopting parent-friendly practices, Hollywood would be all but guaranteed an increase in its female workforce"
LA Times
It's a good place for job postings (hire other parents!)

...and to find parents who are willing to share the cost of a babysitter
or who will watch your kids while you work (if you do the same for them).

For those of you amazing parents who are not on Facebook - you are better people than we are.
Don't worry. You can join our mailing list instead.
