WIF Board Member, Hannah Minghella, on being an advocate for women behind the camera, "We still have a long way to go, but I do for the first time see actual change. I sit on the board of Women In Film and have been a part of the ReFrame initiative. And the whole objective has been not just to turn up the dial on the level of conversation but to find very pragmatic ways to engage the studios in supporting everybody's interest in creating more gender equity. I am not going to say we're anywhere near where we need to be. But I certainly don't feel like the lone voice at the studio championing this. It is a prime focus of mine to bring more women into the studio."

“Everything, Everything” director Stella Meghie, who made her debut with the Canadian production “Jean of the Joneses,” isn’t just being modest when she says she didn’t expect to direct a studio film. The numbers tell us as much: Most female filmmakers struggle to get a second film off the ground, and the number of black female filmmakers in the studio system is vanishingly small.

In fact, Meghie is just one of 16 female filmmakers to have a studio-backed film hitting theaters in 2017 (that includes studio speciality divisions). Meghie hopes that films like “Everything, Everything,” and studios willing to take chances on rising female filmmakers like her, will begin to change the tide. “You read the statistics and you just know, ‘Oh, I’m one of four this year, great,'” Meghie said. “The conversation is much bigger right now, which I think forces executives who are in a place of power to have to consider women and open the door and let more in, so all I can do is do as well as I can and speak out where I can. There’s just a bias that is ingrained into the industry that can change only slowly. There’s something happening.” #filmmakers

Lara Saba explains what it's like being a filmmaker in the Middle East: We have a long history of foreign companies funding our films, but it's hard to make films about the stories we want to tell, stories about every day people and their struggles. They want to see stories that represent the image they know of us - stories of war, religious or ethnic struggles. #SheToldMe #WomenStorytellers #changingthenarrative #LaraSaba #WomenInFilm #lafilmfestival @filmindependent #reallife #struggles  #ourstory #everydaypeople #MiddleEast
