Katrina Medoff is the founder and co-director of the Women’s Weekend Film Challenge (WWFC), a women-in-film initiative that places professional filmmakers on crews that write, shoot and edit a short film in just one weekend. Through the WWFC, she and her business partner, Tracy Sayre, have produced 24 films to date with more than 500 professional female filmmakers in New York City. These films have already been selected for more than 50 film festivals, including the HBO Women in Comedy Festival and Fantasia Film Festival. One WWFC film won “The Spy Who Dumped Me” Female Storyteller Film Contest and was screened before the blockbuster movie starring Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon in LA. Katrina and Tracy will be launching the WWFC in Los Angeles in 2020.
Katrina also works independently in the film industry as an actor, writer and producer. Her recent projects include the feature film “Ask for Jane,” now playing in select theaters, as well as short films that have screened at SOHO International Film Festival, Queens World Film Festival and more.
