Video Title:
Women in History Filmmaking Panel at HIstory Film Forum 2017
Description:
Across the top-grossing 1,100 films that debuted between 2002 and 2012, only 4.4% were created by female directors. As a study by Dr. Stacy Smith of the USC Annenberg school discovered, of 129 top grossing G, PG, and PG-13 films theatrically released between 2006 and 2011 less than 30% of all on screen speaking characters are girls or women. The ratio of males to females on the silver screen is 2.53 to 1. These statistics highlight a major problem in the world of filmmaking: the limited ability of women and women’s stories to be seen or told. This panel will bring together female experts in the industry to discuss the unique challenges faced by female filmmakers, and the impact this has on historical filmmaking. Speakers Moderator: Laurens Grant, Filmmaker Hannah Ayers, Filmmaker Lynn Novick, Filmmaker Melissa Haizlip, Filmmaker Nancy Buirski , Filmmaker
