There’s more to celebrate with the announcement of the 2018 Sundance Film Festival line-up. As Laura Berger breaks down the number of projects directed or co-directed by women, she highlights the return of directors like Crystal Moselle and Debra Granik who have now made both fiction and non-fiction– Crystal moves from documentary to narrative and Debra is back to narrative after the beautiful portrait-doc, “Stray Dog“. Let’s also cheer on the first-time feature directors like, Elizabeth Chomko, Jordana Spiro, and Bridey Elliott.
Along with our weekly list of campaigns below, take a look at the financial goals that Destri has for the affordable condo for women who want to attend the Sundance Film Festival in January. Please consider giving any amount to help give women easier access to this important festival– today is the deadline!
When taking a look at the campaigns below, remember each dollar, “like,” or share of a campaign impacts the success of all women in the industry. Thanks for doing what you can to lend your support.
Reminder: All of the projects listed below have female directors at the helm OR they are projects that benefit women directors (e.g., film festivals, funds, etc).
