Cynthia’s Picks: Film Registry, My Update, Orange Ending

Film Registry: Our Washington, DC, sister chapter WIFV-DC launched their annual campaign to include more women-directed films in the National Film Registry. We hope you will support them by nominating some wonderful female-driven films this year.

My Update: Speaking of DC, I sent out a recent update to the NYWIFT community about my first seven months as Executive Director (hint: it involved a trip to the capital).

Orange Ending: As Netflix’s Orange is the New Black comes to a close this week, Variety noted how it changed inclusion in television: it “dove headfirst into the challenge of depicting the interlocking stories of poor, queer, addicted inmates of many races; the women of Litchfield Penitentiary quickly became one of the most inclusive casts TV had ever seen.”
