Getting to Know Black Filmmakers in America

It seems a particularly important time to be celebrating Black History Month in America. I don’t have to tell you why (please, don’t make me tell you why). In doing that this year, I decided to shift the focus away from icons of the past (though you’ll see the mark of history in every work…

Women to Watch: October New Releases in Film + Television

Another month has passed, Fall is officially in full swing, and you know what time it is – time for October new releases! Honestly. It feels like just yesterday (it was only a couple of weeks ago) that I was hammering out TWO separate lists to cover September’s offerings in film and television. This month is…

Women to Watch: September New Releases in Film

September film is STACKED. This month is so loaded with new work from women writers and directors, in fact, that I’ve been forced to split September new releases into TWO posts: one for film and one for television. That’s Bad-Ass. And unprecedented for this list. Much of this has to do with the Fall TV schedule – you’ll…

Women to Watch: August New Releases in Film + Television

When I think August, I think END OF SUMMER. That’s a frightening thought. So let’s think AUGUST NEW RELEASES instead, shall we? What’s The Women to Watch List? I started this project all the way back in May. Three months later and I’m both surprised and not surprised. Surprised, because there are SO MANY movies and television…

Women to Watch: July New Releases

Summer blockbusters are here! And with those July new releases come a good number of women written, directed, and produced projects. Yes, that Ghostbusters reboot is one of them. But so is Ab-Fab, and that’s a DAMN BLESSING. via GIPHY First time readers, here’s the deal: I premiered this monthly series back in May as a means to an end. An…

Women to Watch: June Television and Film

In need of a visual refresh to start your summer right? New movies? Fresh June television? Just a little something… different? Don’t worry – I’ve got you covered. If you didn’t catch the premiere of this monthly series in May, I’m DONE ignoring the lack of women voices in film and television. Join me every month…

Women Filmmakers + Showrunners: What to Watch in May

We have a problem. A systemic, deep-set, unacceptable, not-so-small problem. Women filmmakers – where are they? Do they exist? Are they all on some secret retreat writing, planning, getting ready to release their work into the world on a historic day called THE DAY WOMEN FINALLY TAKE OVER THE WORLD? Probably not (but I’ve still got…

Women Directors Not Invited: The THR Director Roundtable

Where are the women directors? This was my first question when The Hollywood Reporter’s annual Director Roundtable appeared on my Devour feed this week. Women directors in Hollywood exist, do they not? Many worked brilliantly last year, didn’t they? Their absence, probably because I am a woman, was glaring from just the screenshot – six…
