Ready yourselves! A new era has begun and we need each other more than ever! As much as I love this country and all the directors who are born here and tell their “American” stories, it’s a good time to look beyond the U.S. borders and gather inspiration to move forward globally. On twitter this week, Director-Writer, Victoria Mahoney, pinned her tweet about “film nourishment” for specific genres saying:
“Mexico+Romania for drama
Africa+China for aesthetic
S.Korea for action
UK for auteur”
It’s become easier to access non-American film due to online distribution and global access to filmmakers on twitter. Where do you pull your inspiration? In our list of crowdfunding campaigns this week, be sure to check out projects like ELLE and SLUT OR NUT from women outside the USA.
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!
