QWOCMAP has inspired me to reach for my greatest dreams and the tools to make them come true.

Since 2000, we’ve been on a journey to transform what we see in film by developing leaders in the art of filmmaking and empowering social justice movements. We continue to be inspired by the generosity of people like you, who contribute time and talent to support our critical work.

QWOCMAP’s vision nurtures filmmakers as artist-activist leaders for social change.
