A documentary about women directors.

Through this documentary we invite viewers into a bracing and intimate conversation with women on the front lines of the film and television directing field. Considering all aspects of the directing experience for women, audiences will learn how and why each remarkable woman successfully drives through creative, cultural, and professional obstacles in a deeply challenging profession.

“Cady McClain’s documentary soars.” “… it is a breath of fresh air.”  “…an inspiring watch.”


“If you want a beautiful primer on the subject of women and film this is it…. A brilliant film.”


“Immensely important for the next generation of film viewers and filmmakers.”


“…illuminating, absorbing, and intelligently crafted.. a revelatory documentary…”

"More videos like this, please. Is so important to never stop talking about this issue because the more voices join the conversation more is the pressure for the studios and producers to do something about it." ~Berenice Dorantes

Went to a very interesting seminar last night thrown by Alliance of Women Directors - AWD on negotiating. According to Emotz Kai, the teacher of the seminar, you'll find many of the tips I learned in this book!

It was great to be able to meet Mr Kai, however, and get his invaluable feedback on questions I had.

Thanks AWD, for making this possible!

It was lovely to share my thoughts with Carolyn Booth, who I hope is doing much more painting since we talked!

Encouraging others is a wonderful feeling. It is a joy to see others try and succeed in their efforts. But to get to success we have to be willing to risk failing. We have to make mistakes.

There is no one perfect way. No one path. There is only YOUR path.

For those of you interested in all things Amazon, last month they cut their payouts to streaming films by roughly 60%. Amazon is where most streaming projects make the most income. iTunes does ok, but Amazon has been, until this recent cut, the stronger performer for indie film.

The argument is that Amazon is going worldwide, so the larger audience will make up for that price cut.

We shall see.

In this article, it is hard for me to see Jeff Bezos saying, "We win a Golden Globe, we sell more shoes." Movies generally aren't made to sell shoes, last time I checked. Blockbusters were the only ones that moved into marketing, like Star Wars. But somehow watching "The Man in the High Castle" on Amazon is supposed to make me remember to buy paper towels.

It's ingenious, I will give them that.

Although we had to cancel our screening/panel due to conflicting precisely with the March for Our Lives happening in downtown LA, there are still films playing before and after the march, from Thurs-Sun. Hope you can check them out! #seeingisbelievingwomendirect #lawomensfest https://t.co/vPkCFtG8ZS
