WFTV Event: Networking, Leeds is fast approaching.  Our fabulous WFTV regional organisers Lauren York and Barbara Govan are both based in Leeds, they have not only secured a fabulous venue but also a selection of welcome drinks and canapés upon arrival.


A short message, below, from Barbara Govan, CEO of Leeds factual Indie Screenhouse;

”I’m passionate about equality and diversity; the longer I’m in the business (and it’s been a while), the more urgent it becomes. Recently I thought, wouldn’t it be great if all the creative women here, from TV, film and other media, could get together? What amazing new ideas and projects could come from that? It’s an exciting, transforming time to be in the creative industries, in Leeds, Yorkshire and outside London. Our own branch of WFTV is a fantastic way to network, to supercharge collaborations, share industry intel and build career support.

Come and join us, tell us what you want from WFTV and be a part of it yourself!”


Lauren York, Managing Director of UK Locations and our second WFTV Leeds Representative adds;

“I want women across the country to benefit from the excellent networking and knowledge sharing events Women in Film & TV offer and I’m really excited to be part of the team bringing it to the North!”






Our networking sessions are for ALL WFTV Members and anyone considering becoming a member, so come along and meet new people in a friendly and informal setting in Leeds.

N.B. The Chamber Room, is in the basement of the venue (East Parade Social).

This event is for women in the film and television industry only, it is open to both members and non-members of WFTV.  If you are not already a member and would like to join, please click here or email



If you can’t attend this  event, please email the WFTV office giving at least 48 hours’ notice. So that we can continue to attract the guests that we do, it’s vital we can be confident that members will attend an event they have booked. Therefore for any non-attendance, we operate a penalty system. If anybody has not given us a minimum of 48 hours’ notice, we suspend their booking privileges for 28 days. After that you are then very welcome to book future WFTV events again.
