A casual discussion on issues facing women & ways to excel in their careers over dinner & drinks.

Join Us


You have been invited to join Cinefemme's Dinner with Dames in SF! We host a monthly dinner party/mentorship program with a rotating list of industry leaders, which so far include: Simon Barrett (The Guest, You're Next), Zoe Bell (Camino, The Hateful Eight), Brandon Blake (Entertainment Attorney), David Boxerbaum (Paradigm), Dean Cundey (Jurassic Park, Back to the Future), Paul Feig (Ghostbusters, Spy), Vicky Jenson (Shrek, Shark Tale), Morgan Long (Requiem), Elvia Van Es (VP, Development at TLC), Joseph Weisberg (The Americans), and Byron Willinger (The Commuter). As a Cinefemme-approved woman in the industry, we hope you'll participate!

The dinners are a combination of first come, first served, as well as some diversity considerations. In order to ensure these dinners represent the widest range of Cinefemmes, we are collecting contact and demographic information. Please take a minute or two to fill out the link so that our industry hosts aren't just blown away by clever women but also by our diversity. Be sure to give us your contact information, we’ll need to get in touch when the time comes. Please list the job title in which you either work or aspire to be a department head/titled on a big project. Multi-hyphenates are fine. 

Please reach out to me, the Program Co-Director, with any questions 
Please do NOT pass the signup link on to a friend. We will occasionally request referrals after your first dinner. At that time, you may write a short recommendation to me at the above email recommending someone, and you MUST be willing to vouch for said person. Dinner attendees are encouraged to be up to date with their Cinefemme membership, so please keep that in mind.

Any poor behavior reflects badly on DINNER WITH DAMES and on Cinefemme, so we must be selective in who participates. We would like this program to continue for a long time and help launch many women in the industry as well as constructively reshape attitudes around women and minorities.

Thank you and hope to see you at a dinner soon!
