Latest updates

PANO Pairs is back! For 2023-2024, we are introducing cohorts, so each pair will be grouped with a cohort who will determine their own cadence but will be encouraged to meet at the beginning and end of the program. With a cohort, you’ll have multiple opportunities to meet and connect with even more PANO members and expand your network!

Instead of traditional mentorship programs where there is an implied hierarchy when naming a mentor and mentee, we’ve opted for an accessible approach inspired by successful mentorships — a mutually beneficial experience where both partners support each other equally in their endeavors. To that end, we’ve done away with the mentor and mentee titles. Instead, everyone participating is the same, one half of a PANO Pair.

Did you find us when we used to be NYC Women Filmmakers? You may be wondering why we changed our name! 

A little over a year ago, we decided that our old name no longer fully reflected the group we were serving. Our once hyper-local community had grown to a global network, so the NYC part of our name felt too specific. And our members include not just women, but trans, and gender-expansive individuals. Thus, we selected the new name PANO (from panoramic) - to better reflect the wide spectrum of filmmakers we serve. 

What do you think of the new name and brand? Let us know in the comments!
Freed of commercial expectations, short films provide opportunities for stories that must be told. That's what makes them so powerful – their necessity. 

Join us for an evening of short films - this showcases unified by all of the presented filmmakers being female-identifying and over 40. Curated by Veteran programmer, Warren Etheredge of @themoviecrush.

RSVP today #linkinbio #panopower
