Cynthia’s Picks: Production Women, Ravenal Submissions, The Inclusive

Production Women: It’s time for more women behind the lens. From lighting to sound to stunts, costumes, sets, and beyond, learn about the many career opportunities for women in production with this new resource from Time’s Up. NYWIFT is a proud partner. (When you watch the PSA keep your eyes peeled for former NYWIFT Board Member and real-life DP Nancy Schreiber, who appears as the DP on screen!)

Ravenal Submissions: NYWIFT is still seeking submissions for the Ravenal Foundation Feature Film Grant, which supports a woman second-time feature film director who is over 40 years of age in the production of a dramatic feature film with $5000; an honorable mention of $2500 will also be presented. Grant funds may be used for pre-production, production or post-production. Apply by March 6th.

The Inclusive: Check out The Inclusive, an empowering new interview series that tackles the topic of gender equality in Hollywood head-on. From leading actors, showrunners, and filmmakers to civil rights lawyers and studio execs, each interview covers the challenges women face in the industry, why it matters to all of us, and what we all can do to change it.
