Terry’s Picks: Tribeca Films, Stuntwomen Survey, Protect Yourself

Tribeca Films: Headed to the festival this week? Consider seeing one of these ten films from talented NYWIFT members.

Stuntwomen Survey: An informal poll of Hollywood’s stuntwomen conducted by veteran stuntwoman Julie Johnson has found that nearly two-thirds of the 43 respondents have been bullied or sexually harassed in the workplace. Additionally, nearly 40% of the respondents had witnessed men putting on dresses and wigs to double for actresses and 35% had witnessed “paint downs” – the application of makeup to allow a white stunt person to double for a minority actor. We must do better.

Protect Yourself: NYWIFT member attorney Nicole Page gives great advice on how documentary filmmakers should address legal issues early and often.
