Help Grow The Director List!

A few TDL highlights-- It's been a busy year!

 

 

WELCOME to the first TDL donation drive! It’s been almost two years since the launch of the website, and it has accomplished some mighty things, but…

>> TDL NEEDS YOU NOW <<

The database is a success– producers are using it! Directors on the list are getting calls about directing jobs! Women are getting hired!

With very little money, we created a practical tool for change and showed that it really can be effective. Now it’s time to scale it!

There are many more talented women we need to add to the database, more projects and directors we want to promote, and so much more we want to do to continue to create real change in Hollywood.

We don’t talk about it, we do it. We’ve proven TDL works, now we need your help to grow it.

If you’ve been following The Director List, you know that TDL is about supporting all female directors, both emerging and established. So when you donate, you are supporting thousands of women!

I’m sure you can understand, it’s not easy for one person to support thousands of people. As much as I truly love the work, I can’t do it all.* This is why a major portion of the money raised will go toward hiring an assistant and paying for specialized help for website and database additions and improvements.

There’s been a lot of talk in the industry lately about change and equality, and now here is an opportunity to take ACTION and make an immediate impact. Help lay the foundation for a strong and growing TDL website that will continue to create change, visibility, and more jobs for female directors.

Thank you for the amazing support you’ve given The Director List this past year, now LET’S TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL!

Sincerely,

Destri
Founder/Editor, The Director List

*There have been some wonderful volunteers who have stepped up over the years and their help has been invaluable!

 

TDL in the News

 

Where will your money go?

staffing and contract labor

business and legal fees

monthly social media fees

TDL events

marketing

monthly website expenses

conference & fest travel

industry outreach


How will this money improve The Director List?

Create a more efficient database update system, so new directors can be entered more quickly.

Make the database more robust and comprehensive (more directors! more filters!).

Allow for more time to advocate in-person and online for female directors.

Add more media for increased visibility of female directors.

Allow a solid foundation to be laid, so fewer donations are required in the future.

Allow every part of TDL to function at once (i.e., Twitter won’t be paused while the database gets an update).

Prevent Destri from losing her mind.

Did you know?

Thedirectorlist.com launched May 2015, but The Director List has been around for over four years. Started as a Pinterest board, Destri Martino has been advocating for female directors by sharing pictures via Pinterest, and then one year later by adding the TDL Twitter account to share photos and news about female directors and their work.
