We Make Movies: A Year In Pics (2016)

2016 was another busy year … In addition to our workshops, we hosted our 4th Annual WMMFEST, a Screening Series, a Short Film Challenge and premiered our first television pilot, OFF THE GRID. Then there are the countless collaborations that grew out of our workshops, finding their way into the festival circuit and in theaters all over the nation. Here’s a taste of the magic made through WMM, in 2016’s “Year In Pics”!

O F F   T H E   G R I D   P R E M I E R E

Our first official television pilot premiered at The Sundance Theatre on October 6th.
