Terry’s Picks: June 18

Go Check Out: the entertaining and quirky My Best Day, now playing at re-Run in Dumbo.  The film’s director, Erin Greenwell, is the recipient of a NYWIFT Nancy Malone Directing Award.

Just Read:  this article by director/writer Maria Giese about the potential use of the “null hypothesis” as a remedy for women in the US.
“International Parity for Women Directors: The Legal Strategy” is a cyber meeting place for women and men around the world who support equity for women in film, television and digital media. They are looking into civil rights laws to help women consider legal action when confronted by gender discrimination.

Looking Forward To:  the first Movie Night with Tangerine Entertainment, an emerging production company dedicated to providing opportunities to women filmmakers. The first movie is Sleepless in Seattle, one of my favorites, on Tuesday, June 25th – 20 years after the film was released. Tangerine Ent’s Movie Nights encourages women to get together around the country, watch a movie all on the same night, tweet and exchange ideas online about the film. Be there! Or be “wherever” with some friends to watch Sleepless!

Terry Lawler is the Executive Director of NYWIFT. Tune in every Tuesday for her picks of the week.
