Wishing you all:Happy Women’s Equality Day, celebrating the passage of the 19th Amendment recognizing women’s right to vote.

Congratulations to: NYWIFT member Sandra Shulberg, whose Indie Collect just received a $200,000 grant from the Ford Foundation to catalogue and find archives for orphaned independent films. NYWIFT’s Women’s Film Preservation Fund committee is working with Sandra on the effort.

Going to miss: Mireille Enos as Sarah Linden now that the final six episodes of The Killing have come out on Netflix. An amazing performance, year after year, as a truly authentic female character.

Terry Lawler is NYWIFT’s Executive Director. Tune in every Tuesday for her picks.
