Congratulations: to director Caryn Waechter for receiving the Tangerine Entertainment Juice Award for The Sisterhood of the Night, produced by NYWIFT member Lydia Dean Pilcher, at the Woodstock International Film Festival.

Happy: to see that another Patricia Highsmith novel has been made into a movie. The Two Faces of January is a successful adaptation, though I’m not sure anything can beat Strangers on a Train.

Finding: it noteworthy that the BBC writes about the lack of females in Hollywood, especially at the director level. Read about the research and reactions from Ben Affleck, Reese Witherspoon, Juliet Rylance, Katie Holmes, Martha Lauren (author of The Celluloid Ceiling study), Katie Holmes and some input from yours truly.

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