Event Overview

Currently women direct 6% of big studio films. How can these statistics trend higher for women? How might an equal opportunity "playing field" be created for women? Can the myth that "women cannot handle big budget movie making" be dispelled?

Join a lively panel discussion hosted by Aliance of Women Directors and hear the latest from working industry females and HollyShorts festival alumni about the challenges women face in today's Film & Entertainment business and the role that Film Festivals play in the launch of your career.

The Alliance Of Women Directors (AWD) fosters a community of professionals to advance the art, craft and visibility of women directors in the world of film, television and new media. AWD is dedicated to create opportunity for women's voices in our industry, because we believe it is vital that stories are told from all perspectives
