Terry’s Picks: NYWIFT Grants, Abby Wambach, Follow Through

NYWIFT Grants: Applications for the NYWIFT Fund for Women Filmmakers are open now through June 22nd. The funds are: the Loreen Arbus Disability Awareness Grant, In-Kind Post-Production Grants, the Nancy Malone Marketing and Promotion Grant, and the Ravenal Foundation Feature Film Grant. 

Abby Wambach: Take a few minutes to listen to or read soccer star Abby Wambach’s commencement speech to Barnard’s graduating class – you don’t have to be a college student to be inspired.

Follow Through: Three months after Frances McDormand’s Oscar acceptance speech where she called for the use of inclusion riders, Vanity Fair takes a look at how many industry leaders are actually using the provision so far. (Answer: not many.)
