Our Work

As a Director of Programs Maura helped develop the overall strategy for NYWIFT programming for two years (panels, keynotes, and special events). With her team, she oversaw over 50 revenue generating events a year, culminating in strategic partnerships with festivals & conference providers: NYTVF, Benton Film Festival, and Digital Media Wire. She strengthened the relationship with the New York City Council who doubled their funding for the Women Immigrant Series in 2017.
