I find myself: asking the same question. Where is the progress? Women directors worked on as many Hollywood films in 2014 as they did in 1998. Check out the new Celluloid Ceiling Report by Martha Lauzen.
Congratulations to: NYWIFT member Wendy Blackstone, who composed the score for Academy Award-nominated film Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1. Wendy has worked on eight Oscar-nominated films, three of which have gone on to win!

Getting ready: for a major binge on films by women at the Carte Blanche Series at Moma celebrating the 20th Anniversary of NYWIFT’s Women’s Film Preservation Fund – two weeks, 27 programs, over 50 films, the oldest one made by Alice Guy Blaché in 1902.

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