Lawler joins femme org

NEW YORK — Terry Lawler has joined New York Women in Film & Television as executive director. Prior to joining the organization, Lawler served as director of development and production at Women Make Movies, a nonprofit distributor of media by and about women.

From 1986 to 1991, Lawler was national director of the film and videomakers services division of the American Film Institute. At AFI, she supervised the production of several network television specials and feature documentaries, including “Visions of Light: The Art of Cinematography” — which Daily Variety chief film critic Todd McCarthy co-directed — winner of the best docu awards from the American Society of Film Critics and the New York Film Critics Circle.

“Terry’s background as a nonprofit administrator and fundraiser, along with her experience in production and with women’s film and video, make her uniquely qualified for the executive director position at NYWIFT,” said Joy Pereths, the org’s president.

“I am coming to NYWIFT at a wonderful moment,” said Lawler. “Our membership list just hit the 1,000 mark and in 1998 we will be celebrating our 20th anniversary. As we move into our third decade, we will build on our past successes, increasing our numbers and having an even greater impact.”

Org was founded in 1978 as a networking and education forum.
