TheWIFTS Foundation Film Awards 2013
   
TheWIFTS Foundation Film Awards 2013 were chosen by TheWIFTS Screening Committee from a pre-selected group of films that met the overall criteria of aims and objectives as set forth by The Women's International Film & Television Showcase (TheWIFTS) The Women's International Film & Television Shorts Showcase (TheWIFTSS) and TheWIFTS Foundation.
 
After three years of presenting a week-long event during which films were screened and voted on by a Jury in 2011, TheWIFTS Foundation concluded it would be in the best interest of both the filmmakers and their films to initiate a Screening Committee comprised of kindred spirits who embody TheWIFTS core ethos of individuality.
 
After viewing many films, TheWIFTS 2013 Viewing Committee made their selection. The award-winning films were not only be chosen for their content, originality, and sensitivity but also with an eye to each filmmaker's entire body of work.
 
Unlike society's norm of pitting talent against talent, TheWIFTS Screening Committee will continue to strive for Equality not Hierarchy by seeking out unsung yet supremely creative women, bringing them together, and celebrating the unique individuality they have expressed through the art forms of film and television.
