As part of its ongoing commitment to supporting the diversity efforts of the Alliance for Women Film Composers (AWFC), BMI co-sponsored the organization’s inaugural brunch during the Sundance Film Festival on Tuesday, January 27, 2015, at Café Terigo in Park City, Utah.

AWFC celebrated the 15 female composers whose work appeared in films included at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Composers and colleagues arrived in support of the new organization, whose mission is to increase the visibility of women composers active in scoring media, to advocate for the inclusion of women composers within industry events, to support directors, producers, music supervisors, editors, game developers and studios with their inclusion of women composers and to educate, mentor and inspire emerging women composers.
