PORING OVER: this wonderful list of grants and resources for filmmakers! NoFilmSchool has organized opportunities with upcoming deadlines from February to May by Documentary, Narrative and Screenwriting categories.

ADMIRING THE ATTITUDE: that Lexi Alexander took at the Athena Film Festival over the weekend. At her Saturday panel, Alexander proposed a three-person alliance in order to get more women directors on deck without jeopardizing professional relationships.

EXPANDING MY NOTIONS: of how women are depicted in image creation, thanks to this new initiative by LeanIn.Org and Getty. Lean In boss Sheryl Sandberg pinpoints the dearth of stock images showcasing women in business and STEM leadership roles.
