Welcome to The AWFC!
We are a community of composers and colleagues who strive to support and celebrate the work of women composers through advocacy and education. This visibility is important to herald in equality amongst our industry and bring diverse voices to film, television, video games and multimedia projects. We are proud to host the first ever directory of women film composers allowing filmmakers and decision makers the opportunity to discover new talent. Please also check out our weekly composer spotlight featuring short interviews with our members.

Free Event: ASMAC - American Society of Music Arrangers and Composers presents
Rediscoveries of Women in Jazz: Babe Egan, Valerie Capers, and more.
Sat, Mar 18, 2023, 12:00 PM PDT
Jazz Historian, Musicologist Jeannie Gayle Pool will share stories about Babe Egan and other women in jazz of the 1920s and 1930s. Valerie Capers will join us, along with Bonnie Janofsky, Janet Klein, and possibly others.
Read about Babe Egan and the Hollywood Redheads (2022) by Jeannie Gayle Pool. “The story of Babe Egan’s life provides provocative insights into the history of vaudeville, jazz, radio, the recording industry, and film production. It reveals how these branches of the early entertainment industry intertwined and formed the basis of our present-day global mass media.”
“Violinist and bandleader Babe Egan was a vaudeville superstar. In 1929, she was one of the highest paid women in vaudeville, earning $50,000 that year (equivalent to $880,000 today). She performed for tens of millions of theatergoers in the US, coast-to-coast, in Canada, and in Europe, and her band was regularly featured on radio. The Hollywood Redheads appeared in the first German talking picture, as well as on its soundtrack. They were booked solid from 1924 until 1933, doing two, three, or four shows a day.”
