Welcome to Wild West Women

Celebrating Women ~ Our History, Our Creators, Our Stories.

At Wild West Women we make and distribute films. Films about women, our history, artists, creations. Historical and current. We are pleased to share our films with you. And are excited to share information about our new projects.

Ishtar Films has transitioned into Wild West Women, Inc., a non-profit, educational corporation, allowing us to receive tax-deductible contributions and grants. Wild West Women and Ishtar Films work hand in hand to produce films which bring women and our history out of the shadows.
