Today is a good time to consider the status quo and break free! I recently read this quote and felt affirmed to take a new step in my career and I hope it gives you the same energy to move forward:
The traditional ways to make a film, the traditional ways to share a film, have all collapsed. There are no gatekeepers, per se, any more, and anything can be done. Truly, I feel that. – Ava DuVernay
This is not a new idea in 2017, but in this trend of bucking patriarchal tradition in the industry, it feels more powerful than ever. Now is the time to support the directors below as they step out in their own power to make without permission from the gatekeepers. Thanks for taking a look, and as always, feel free to send us recommendations on more projects we can include next week!
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). The campaigns at the top of the list are the ones ending soonest, so get in there and support ASAP (with $$ or an RT on Twitter). Click the titles to go directly to each project’s crowdfunding page, those in italics are new additions this week.
