"Art can bridge cultural differences and give a voice to women who come from societies in which their voices are often marginalized." (Lee Broda, Producer, WCC Founder & President)
Women Creating Change (WCC) was founded in 2017 by a group of passionate Israeli and Arab female filmmakers from the Middle East and North Africa. WCC is dedicated to celebrating the diverse MENA cultures through filmmaking and fostering an environment of tolerance, inclusion, and solidarity between fellow MENA artists, who otherwise might never come together and are often neglected in mainstream media!
In its first 4 years, WCC has created numerous networking events, held panels and masterclasses, produced variety shows and unifying experiences, which resulted in 5 film projects and many work opportunities between female MENA filmmakers and actresses from different backgrounds.
To continue building on our momentum to support MENA female filmmakers and expand WCC’s reach, we are launching our end-of-year fundraising campaign focusing on the theme of Resilience, culminating with our annual Stand Up for Her event that showcases our member's EXTRAORDINARY stories and talents!
