Women Make Movies is the only national organization dedicated to
supporting women documentary directors and producers, especially women
of color. We believe the film industry must change, and truly represent
the full diversity of our world, including LGBTQ filmmakers and women
with disabilities. Most importantly, we think diverse filmmakers should
be able to win acclaim and build long-term careers.
Here’s what we accomplished in 2017:
- Six films at this year's Sundance Film Festival
came out of our program. Five of those were directed by women of color.
- More than 1,000 filmmakers around the world
attended our workshops and webinars, gaining career skills they need to
- Through our support, filmmakers raised more than $6.5
million for their projects last year.
- Two films from our Production Assistance Program, STRONG ISLAND
(dir. Yance Ford) and UNREST (dir. Jennifer Brea), made
the Academy’s 2017 Documentary Shortlist.
