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.

Our goal is to offer immediate mentorship for anyone looking for inspiration and tools as they pursue their dreams of becoming a leader in ANY field!

Our Director Cady McClain is being awarded the MATRIX AWARD by the Alliance of Women in Communications in September 2017!

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

Episode One: The Vanguard of Change premiered at the 2017 Newport Beach International Film Festival 2017 where it won a Jury Award in the Best Short Documentary category!

Our new feature length version premiered at the SOHO Film Festival 2017 and won the coveted AUDIENCE AWARD!

"It was not only important for setting the tone of the show, but we all believe that it is incredibly important to hire women behind the camera. There’s a huge imbalance that needs to be corrected, and we’ve got to put our money where our mouth is and set that example as producers. If we don’t do it, who will?" -Elizabeth Moss

Love her! ❤️❤️❤️
