Quick post today! Our round-up of projects grows and changes every week. I scour the usual crowdfunding sites, but if you hear of alternatives, be sure to shoot us a note.
One addition I’d like to note is the AFI Conservatory Directing Workshop for Women. This fund is looking for additional contributions as they support women advancing their careers as directors. Since 1975 they’ve been graduating classes of 8-12 women including notable alumnae: Maya Angelou, Anne Bancroft, Neema Barnette, Lesli Linka Glatter, and Ellen Burstyn, to name a few. This is a wonderful way to get behind promising up-and-coming directors, check it out!
As always, thank you for pitching in to these campaigns via their campaign page, on twitter, Facebook, and elsewhere. — Sarah
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.
Thanks for visiting and thank you very much for helping us support and raise awareness about WOMEN DIRECTORS AT WORK!
