Terry’s Picks: A Discrimination Primer, New Faces, Freeheld

Discrimination
101:
Check out this
informative primer
on the ACLU investigation into
Hollywood’s gender discrimination to learn about the cycle – and how to break
it.

Kudos:
Filmmaker Magazine
named its 25 New Faces of Independent Film
and 11 of them are women.

#LoveIsLove:
Looking
forward to the timely film Freeheld,
starring Julianne Moore as a terminally ill woman fighting to have her pension
benefits transferred to her domestic partner (Ellen Page). It’s based on the
documentary by Cynthia Wade, which was funded in part by the 2007 NYWIFT
Adrienne Shelly Foundation Grant. The first
trailer
was released this week.
