WELCOME to the emerging chapter of Women in Film and Media Colorado (WIFMCO)! Our organization is dedicated to the advancement of all women working in the film, television, multi-media, web and video game industries in Colorado.

Welcome to our Garden! It’s very Shiny!
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, established in 2016 with the purpose of creating inclusive events that celebrate diversity and bring all fans together.
We currently have two events under our umbrella.
The Myths and Legends Convention has been running since 2013 and focuses on our “modern” myths and legends, such as Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Firefly (shiny). It’s an excellent event for first-time convention attendees, people who like smaller crowds, and adults who have felt left out of conversations. Come join us August 4 – 6, 2017! Find more about MALCon at malcondenver.org .
Our other event is WhimsyCon, will debut March 2 – 4, 2018. We are focusing on both Steampunk – how we envision an inclusive world where steam rules and everyone is equal – and the craftsmanship of costuming. Find more about WhimsyCon at whimsycon.org .
You can find us at many Denver-area conventions, meeting with other fans and answering questions. We’ll have tables in the area with the other conventions (“fan tables”) so come find us and ask us anything!
