Ally Membership

About Ally Membership

We’re thrilled to announce a new membership level at AWD – Ally Member! An AWD Ally membership is perfect for:

  • Anyone who supports AWD’s mission to increase the number of women and gender non-binary directors being hired
  • Anyone who loves film, television, music videos, and commercials
  • Anyone who is hoping to join AWD as a Directing Member but is not yet eligible
  • Anyone who works in the film industry and wants to get to know more directors and what’s happening in the world of directing

Why join as an Ally member?

To show your support for women and gender non-binary directors!

While there have been gains in creating a more inclusive and diverse film industry – there’s still a lot of work to do, which is why we need support from allies like you to keep the needle moving towards more inclusivity!

Your annual contribution will go toward supporting the infrastructure of the organization, which includes maintaining our lovely website that celebrates women directors, the newsletter system we use to keep you – and our industry partners – up to date on everything happening within AWD, and finally our programming staff who work diligently to build relationships and create events and programs to further our mission of transforming the industry.

As a thank you for joining us as an Ally member, you will receive our monthly newsletter featuring a recap of the month’s news, interviews with AWD Directing members, highlights on AWD Director’s projects, and an overview of upcoming events.

As an Ally member, you will also have the opportunity to attend select events throughout the year, including our annual in-person bash where Directing and Ally members mingle and connect (for those in the Los Angeles area), our virtual Social Sundays (for those anywhere in the world), and our AWD South bi-monthly Book Club (virtual). Other opportunities may include select screenings and conversations hosted by our studio and network partners. *Please note that you must be over 21 to attend any in-person AWD events that serve alcohol.

One of the founding principles of the organization is that community is important, and we are thrilled that our community will be even stronger because of you.
