Update #15

Women Support Women: A Sisterhood of Filmmakers

2 comments

Dear Sisterhood Fans: 

This campaign has shown us that our film speaks to you in diverse and thoughtful ways. In celebration of Women's History Month, we want to express in this update how empowered we feel by the number of women filmmakers who have come forward to share, connect, and support us.

Sisterhood producer, Lydia Dean Pilcher, speaks to this and more on Indiewire's Hope for Film in a new article released today:

"It's no surprise that women are more likely to green light women's pictures, have more confidence in women directors, and be more interested in stories about female characters."

Check out the article here: Community Trumps The Industry: Women Support Women To Get Movies Made and Seen

Thank you for getting behind our team of women filmmakers (and David Urrutia, who is one of our executive producers!) Please continue to help us expand this Sisterhood community in the last 3 days of our campaign.

xxTeam Sisterhood
