Collective Creation: Newark Women in Film Presents
Since our inception Newark Women in Film has been on a mission to turn women's stories, visions and talents into completed films. Come see a sampling of the work we've produced over the previous two years, learn about the process that got our films across the finish line, and hear about the new directions our alumnae are heading in.

3:30PM-5PM Workshop:
Removing the Blocks to Our Creativity
For a creative professional, a mental block isn’t just frustrating — it’s potentially career-damaging. When you rely on your creativity to pay the bills and build your reputation, you can’t afford to be short of ideas or the energy to put them into action. By identifying your own programming and behavior patterns, reflect back and decide what you wish to change. Wear clothing of comfort, bring a pen and a pad.

##

At all our events and workshops we do ask for a $5.00 - $25.00 sliding scale donation at the door for our facilitators to keep this type of art open to the public. If you can give please give. If not no one will be turned away. Our workshops are open to all genders, races, and sexualities but preference will be given to women.
