International Women’s Day and Women In Film 2019

I’d like to start off by wishing all of our female readers a Happy Women’s Day / International Women’s Day!

You may ask, what is the specific correlation between Women’s Day and Female Filmmakers? However, there is much to celebrate, and 2019 has been a great year thus far for women in film above the line and below the line.

To name a few examples, this year was historic with a record number of women winning Oscars. Also, for the first time in history, each of the major movie studios have at least one female-directed movie slated for release this year. Many are stepping up to the plate with the 4 Percent Challenge and we’ve seen both France and the City of New York issue grants or subsidies to female filmmakers.

There were notable milestones and I am excited for what’s in-store.  As women, we need to continue to find our own voices. We also need to push to control both the narrative and our portrayal in film.
