WMM’s Director of Strategy & Innovation Kendra Hodgson shares, “Docuseek has extensive experience in educational streaming distribution and the technology behind it, and they have a reputation of being sensitive and responsive to the unique needs of librarians and faculty members. Equally important to us, because the platform is run by independent film distributors, they understand and prioritize the needs of filmmakers. It is part of our mission to ensure the voices of diverse women filmmakers are included and featured on major streaming platforms, and we are excited to work with Docuseek to expand the reach and audiences of WMM films.”
Alex Hoskyns-Abrahall, Vice President of Docuseek, LLC, said, “From support for women filmmakers through to distribution of some of the most-powerful documentary films ever made, Women Make Movies is a leader in independent film. The importance of Women Make Movies to the documentary genre and film landscape cannot be overstated. We are thrilled to welcome new distributing partner Women Make Movies to Docuseek.”
