Terry’s Picks: A ‘Toolkit’ to Prove Women-Led Projects Make Money, ‘Dear White People’ & Salke Is Honored

imageDear White People.

Cheering on: NYWIFT member Lydia Dean Pilcher. She’s working with the Producers Guild of America to create a “toolkit” of stats to prove that women-led projects are lucrative business both here and abroad.

Recommending: Dear White People, a film produced by Lena Waithe and Ann Le. I was especially impressed by Tessa Thompson’s performance. I have been a fan of her work on BBC America’s Copper.

Congratulations to: NBC’s Jennifer Salke, honored at the Big Brothers Big Sisters gala as part of the Women in Entertainment Program.

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