Terry’s Picks: Pilot Season, Tribeca 2018, Diversity Wins

Pilot Season: Women are directing 24 of the 75 broadcast TV pilots this year, which amounts to 32 percent. This is a huge improvement – last year, only 6 out of 70 were directed by women.

Tribeca 2018: We have so many NYWIFT members with films headed to Tribeca this year – be sure to check them all out! Lisa D’Apolito’s documentary Love, Gilda will open the fest on April 18.

Diversity Wins: Films with women or minorities in lead roles dominated the box office for 11 out of the first 12 weekends this year.
