TheWIFTS Foundation Film Awards 2015
   
TheWIFTS Foundation Film Awards 2015 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) The Women's International Film & Television Documentary Showcase (TheWIFTDS) and TheWIFTS Foundation.
 
From its inception in 2008 until 2011, TheWIFTS presented 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 2015 Viewing Committee made their selection. The award-winning films were not only chosen for their content, originality, and sensitivity but also jn some cases with an eye to the 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, and celebrating the unique individuality they have expressed through the art forms of film and television.
