About

Owning It, a program of The Gotham Film & Media Institute, is dedicated to supporting, connecting, and empowering women and non-binary creators and entrepreneurs who break down boundaries in the media and entertainment industry.

The program consists of monthly fireside chats, an annual summit, accountability challenges, workshops, and more. Past Owning It guests include Rebecca Hall (Passing), Alice Wu (The Half of It), and Julie Deply (Two Days in Paris, The Before Trilogy, My Zoe).

Owning It provides an inclusive environment that expands and expresses a liberated movement for women and non-binary individuals as well as those that are our champions, advocates, and allies.

Owning It Summit

Each year, during our annual summit, Owning It brings together women and non-binary filmmakers and entrepreneurs of all levels to share their experiences and expertise, learn new skills, and meet like-minded collaborators.

Accountability Challenges

Through Owning It Accountability Challenges, we support women and non-binary creators and entrepreneurs as they complete their websites, pitch decks, and more. By providing opportunities to connect with others, hear feedback from industry leaders, and mentorship, participants walk away with the next steps needed to continue to grow their projects and careers.

Virtual Fireside Chats

Each month, join Owning It for a fireside chat with women and non-binary filmmakers and creators making an impact in their industry to hear about their experiences and gain insight into the film and media industry.

Owning It Summit

Owning It brings together women and non-binary filmmakers and entrepreneurs of all levels to share their experiences and expertise, learn new skills, and meet like-minded collaborators. Join us in 2022 from March 28 to April 1 for five days of workshops, networking events, panels, and more.
