Terry’s Picks: Suffragette, Shonda Rhimes & Disruptive Women

Still from Suffragette

Loving NYWIFT Members: NYWIFT board member Maura Kelly
interviewed member Erin Day
about her work as the Festival Director
of the New York Television Festival. This interview is part of Maura’s
“Disruptive Women” blog series for The Huffington Post.

Totally Agree: Shonda Rhimes isn’t “diversifying” TV. She’s “normalizing
it.

This Has Got My Vote: Focus Features will distribute
Suffragette,
director Sarah Gavron’s film about the early-twentieth century battle
for women’s voting rights in the U.K. Carey Mulligan, Helen Bonham
Carter and Meryl Streep will star.
