It’s Tribeca Film Festival time! Here are “5 Female Directors to Watch.”
Pulitzer Prize winners were announced. Donna Tartt received top fiction honor for The Goldfinch, playwright Annie Baker won for The Flick.
DreamWorks’ next movie will have an African-American, female lead.
The number of women writers in television has increased, but declined in film.
Suzanne Smith is the only woman directing NFL programming. Wow!
Hollywood needs more women putting “lights” on the camera’s action.
