WIFVNE Presents: Beyond BARBIE panel

at Bryant University's 2024 Women's Summit

Everyone knows about Greta Gerwig’s success with Barbie, but there are many dynamic women working in the entertainment industry. The panelists have led successful careers as grips, writers, directors, producers, and production designers in what was traditionally a “boys club.”

At 3:30pm on March 14, WIFVNE Board member Kristen Falso-Capaldi moderates "Beyond BARBIE …How Women are Changing the Future of the Film Industry" as part of the 2024 Women's Summit at Bryant University. Panelists include WIFVNE Board President Sharon Contillo, WIFVNE member Joan Cassin, and IATSE union member Carissa Spatcher
