Feminist Films: Celebrate Women’s History Month by watching these 30 feminist films.
Inclusion Rider: Despite record Oscar nominations for women, not as many won as we had hoped – the fewest, in fact, since 2012. But kudos to past NYWIFT Muse honoree and Best Actress winner Frances McDormand, who made of a point of recognizing the female nominees before drawing the crowd’s attention to inclusion riders. The riders are a powerful addendum that a star can insist be added to his or her contract, requiring the production to meet certain diversity requirements in their hiring of the cast and crew.
Patty Carey: Congratulations to NYWIFT member Patty Carey, who won the Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment’s #GreenlightHer pilot competition.
