Laying out the truth at Sundance: the 8th annual Women in Film panel highlighted the large discrepancies that still exist across the industry and awarded $32K in grants to women filmmakers.

Thinking about red carpet sexism: with the above GIF of Cate Blanchett at the SAG Awards making its rounds on the internet. Blanchett calls out a camera’s awkward panning of her body from bottom to top, asking if the crew also did this to male attendees.

Focused on cracking: the Celluloid Ceiling, which reported the lowest behind-the-scenes employment for women in 16 years. The annual report, published by the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego State University, is available here.

Terry Lawler is NYWIFT’s Executive Director. Tune in every Tuesday for her picks of the week.
