Cinema Femme has a timely mission—we share the stories of women in film to show other women how they can do it too, and support them on their journey there.
We do this by featuring interviews from women in the industry who speak about their career insights, professional experiences, inspiration, and more. We shine a light on the lessons they have learned, and the advice they would share with our “master class” YouTube series (coming early 2020). And we build a supportive and collaborative community of unique and talented women by hosting networking events across the nation and fostering connections online.
In fact, the Cinema Femme network is a force to be reckoned with—our community is growing each day in cities including Los Angeles, New York City, and Chicago. From budding filmmakers to seasoned cinematographers, we facilitate and nurture relationships between women in film at every level, supporting each other at every stage along the way.
Cinema Femme inspires change in the industry. We are vocal about the need for women, women of color, and LGBT+ representation on screen and behind the lens. We elevate the diverse voices of film critics, filmmakers, and moviegoers. We believe that together we can change the industry for the better.
Finally, as unabashed cinephiles, we write love letters to cinema. Each season, we publish a collection of personal essays and artwork in appreciation for film. This year, our essays and illustrations were inspired by “Black Panther,” “Strong Island,” “A League of Their Own,” “Clueless,” and other films. Here we celebrate the art of film.
