Terry’s Picks: 2017 Preview, Women Animators, Melina Matsoukas

2017 Preview: Onward and upward! Women and Hollywood and Film School Rejects have both compiled great lists of films by and about women to look for in 2017. (It’s worth noting that the top movies of the last four years star women!)

Women Animators: In response to The Hollywood Reporter’s all male – and all white – animators’ roundtable, Elle published their own. These accomplished women animators, half of whom are ethnically diverse, offer some great insight and advice for up-and-comers.

Melina Matsoukas: Matsoukas, who is the Executive Producer of Issa Rae’s Insecure on HBO, talked to The New York Times about directing Beyoncé’s groundbreaking music video for “Formation” last year.
