In her article with Indiewire, Erica Rose discusses the ever present gender-bias in film schools, and the need for women filmmakers to be seen as “one of the boys”.
Rose states that -
"There is no money being made in film school, so we can see that this is not a problem just driven by business figures. It’s so important that we address how women, from crewmembers to characters, are devalued and denigrated in film school. It’s a serious problem, and the only way to begin fixing it is if we begin the conversation."
The conversation has already been started.
I would like to invite you to consistently seek out films made by women and support them while continuing to speak out about the lack of movies directed/produced by women. Nothing will change unless we take the initiative to fix it ourselves.
