A documentary series about women directors.

 During this series, audiences will hear from women who are on the front lines of the field: from major award winners and those in the vanguard of television and feature films, to graduated students and frustrated auteurs. Considering all aspects of the directing experience for women, we will learn how they drive through obstacles creative, cultural, and professional.

The film is also intended to serve as “peer to peer mentorship” for anyone (of any gender) looking for guidance and real world experience as they pursue their dreams of becoming a visual storyteller.

We are a thrilled recipient of an Awesome Without Borders Grant!

Episode One: The Vanguard of Change will be premiering at the 2017 Newport Beach International Film Festival on April 25th at 1:30PM at Island Cinema 6.

This series is Executive Produced by  Cady McClain and Leah Meyerhoff.
