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.

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

Check out the about page for more information on the series.

Change takes time. This is a much deeper issue then pointing out the problem. This is systemic, pounded in suspicion based on years of history that goes much, much deeper than show business. This is a cultural issue.

One thing that can change is the issue of women not helping, or even blocking the path, for other women. This is something all women can tackle, and immediately.

If you are a woman and you call another woman "difficult," in a group of others, if you don't share information that could help another woman in the industry because you want to keep it for yourself, if you don't go a little out of your way to help create opportunity for another woman or mentor someone.... you are part of the problem.

But you can change, and it's not hard at all. Don't waste your time pointing the finger. Don't waste your time blaming others. Do something about it.

If you are a woman and you really want change.... stop competing and start helping other women.

If we don''t have each other's backs... how can we expect anyone else to have our backs?

Have your own project that you’re working on that you don’t need the approval of others to complete. #EileenOMeara #SIBWD @SidGrauman https://t.co/VXuZP7EEun CadyMcClain photo

How lucky we are to be able to publicly disagree with another person, to have a voice in the world. #freedom #gratitude #rights
