September 1st. We are now officially 1 year away from the launch of #DirectedbyWomen, a 15 day worldwide film viewing party!
Mark your calendars for September 1 - 15, 2015. And begin now to look around to discover how many different places films/tv/web series/home movies/other moving images #DirectedbyWomen or girls can be celebrated. Let’s find out how many different motion pictures #DirectedbyWomen we can view and appreciate in those 15 days.
Women directors ask, “Can my film be included?” YES. Definitely. Every motion picture #DirectedbyWomen can have a place in this global celebration. We’re all going to step up and make events happen in our own communities and households.
Let’s light the world up with films #DirectedbyWomen!
Can’t wait to celebrate with you.

"For me, anyone who finishes a film I take my hat off to. When an audience sees a finished film, it doesn’t know the wars fought by the director to make his or her picture."
Still from Killer of Sheep (1979, dir. Charles Burnett)
