Women in Film Chicago is proud to once again host the Focus Awards, our signature fundraising event, on Wednesday, February 22, 2016 at Columbia College, 1104 S. Wabash Ave. 8th Floor Chicago, IL 60605. Your ticket includes access to our open bar and appetizers.
The mission of the Focus Awards is two-fold: to raise the necessary capital to provide quality programming, networking and mentorship opportunities for women in the advertising, film and television industries and to honor the accomplishments of the noted "superwomen" who continually put Chicago on the map.
We are honoring 4 Spectacular Women:
Mary Morten lifelong social activist and film producer making a difference for marginalized communities.
Tari Segal DP/Operator on Chicago Justice
Julia Sweeney, Saturday Night Live alumna, comedian, writer, & executive producer.
Julie Smolyansky the youngest female CEO of a publicly traded company, Lifeway Foods Inc, philanthropist, and producer.
