Terry’s Picks: New Law, #SummerHours, Abigail Disney

New Law: Kudos to the New York State legislature, which passed a new law on Wednesday allocating up to $5 million in new tax incentives to encourage the hiring of women and people of color as TV writers and directors.

#SummerHours: Yesterday we launched NYWIFT’s new #SummerHours blog series focusing on content created by and/or about women that is perfect for your summer vacation binging. You can check out the first post here, and be sure to subscribe to the NYWIFT blog or follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates.

Abigail Disney: More great news for women in film – NYWIFT member (and past Muse honoree) Abigail Disney’s Fork Films has given out grants to 16 documentaries chosen from a pool of more than 300 applicants looking to complete films in various stages of development, with a focus on helping women behind or in front of the camera.
