Resources for Women in Film & Video
In addition to running this site and proving you with easy & affordable camera gear rentals, you can always count on KitSplit to encourage you to brag, and to brag for you. And on our blog and newsletter, we’re constantly sharing awesome resources like film grants (including ones geared towards women) and inexpensive and free resources for filmmakers.
In addition, we partner with and are fans of many other awesome communities and resources supporting female filmmakers. We’ve included a list of those below, for your reference!

New York Women in Film & Television, as the name suggests, offers scholarships and fundingprimarily to women in NYC, but the resources it has regarding the status of female filmmakers apply to all.
