While compiling the list of films & directors over the past few weeks, I noticed a trend – impact films. Stories are told to entertain, to shock, to show-off, but ultimately they are told to leave the viewer with a lasting impression. Two of the films below aim to impact the way we see the earth and interact with the environment.
Earth is a delicate planet which often takes a beating from the humans and animals who call it home. Images like the ones found in Christine Ren’s project “Underwater Dance to Save the Ocean” evoke emotion and inspire understanding that leads to change. Another project “Make it Green” puts the spotlight on the inventors who wish to protect and preserve. Director Zoe Gieringer follows participants of a competition to create eco-friendly or waste-reducing technologies or machines. Environmental awareness is just one of the important ways that women can change the world through film.
Check out the rest of the list of directors crowdfunding their projects today. As always, be sure to update us on your crowdfunding projects so we can include it in a future post! Thanks for adding your $ and voice (or tweet!) toward the empowerment of the artists below!
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!
