Women in Film & Television San Antonio was founded by native San Antonian and Media & Entertainment veteran Ceslie Armstrong at the invitation of the global organization, Armstrong stated: “San Antonio and the region our charter serves represents over 35MM people who participate in storytelling as content creators or consumers,” continued Armstrong, “As the location of award-winning media and entertainment properties; world-class theatres and venues; landmark M&E companies founded by visionary entrepreneurs; and, one of the most visited regions in the world with a deep well of stories to be told, San Antonio is perfectly positioned to drive economic development via training, production opportunities, and forge a strong community throughout our region,” continued Armstrong, “I had to leave San Antonio in 1979 to pursue a professional career in New York City and Los Angeles and my vision is for WIFT SATX+ to work in tandem with organizations, venues, distributors, and several new educational programs to keep our talent pool in our region. I’m excited to connect my high-level industry relationships with the members of WIFT SATX+ to shine a light on our region’s talent comprised of the many professions it takes to produce original IP for audiences locally and globally.”

Women in Film & Television San Antonio founding Board of Directors members include entertainment industry veteran  Treasurer Jeffrey Dash, and film producer  Vice President Eileen Kret
