Congrats to WMM members, producer/director Fiona McDougall and writer/interviewer Jonathan Villet of OneWorld Communications for landing a special selection designation at the Sonoma International Film Festival! Their short documentary Finding Snow White screens at the festival (celebrating its 25th anniversary!) from March 23rd until March 27th. The film is an incredible contribution to the field of mental health. A powerful message around resilience, the human spirit, and the ways in which we can train ourselves to live life in the face of adversity. Beautiful and poignant.

From facilitating a structured, community approach around the filmmaking process (through our Lab Pipeline), educating filmmakers (through professional tutorials, industry workshops and webinars, and Smartphone Studio programming), and providing affordable production and post-production resources (like insurance and other services), WMM has firmly established itself as a presence in the indie film community. With these facets of the film collective and production company thriving, CEO Sam Mestman, President Aubrey Mozino, and constant collaborator and member Steven LaMorte, are bringing the same community-minded, budget-conscious, quality-driven spirit to the newest division of the WMM family - WMM Creative Services.
