“I am thrilled that Alexis will be leading NYWIFT’s board,” NYWIFT executive director Terry Lawler said. “The depth and breadth of her film and television experience will help guide NYWIFT as it enters its 35th year of supporting women calling the shots.”

The following have been newly voted to the board: Amanda Lin Costa, communications director; Robyn Watson, communications director; Marica Chacona, membership director; Simone Pero, special events director; and Caren Spruch, special events director.
