All About Eve marked film editor Barbara McLean’s 7th and final Academy Award nomination during a career that lasted more than 30 years. It was a record that wasn’t surpassed until 2012. – Samantha Ladwig, Vulture. More:
Wonder Woman 2 will be first film to officially adopt new PGA policies on sexual harassment. It is our obligation to change our culture and eradicate this abuse. The Producers Guild of America’s Anti-Sexual Harassment Guidelines are sanctioned as best practices for our members. – PGA. More:
2018 Recipients: Julie Dash & Nina Menkes. The EOS World Fund is a new global initiative that supports bold & innovative women directors. Launch: Jan 19th 2018, The Black House, Sundance Film Festival.
Created by Apricot Films’ visionary producer / director Gwen Wynne, EOS is a response to the crisis involving the severe lack of women helmers in cinema.
Gwen Wynne’s EOS World Fund seeks out material and artists who are known for their unusual, innovative and provocative cinematic work, in both form and content.
Scorsese’s Film Foundation has just awarded a restoration grant to Mark Toscano at the Academy Film Archives, to photochemically restore Nina Menkes’ feature film, QUEEN OF DIAMONDS (1991). Grants are given to work that is considered “culturally and historically significant”.
As a bare-minimum metric, the Bechdel Test does a good job of showing how amazingly far Hollywood is from gender equality. But it isn’t going to push the industry toward an identifiable goal. Many films that pass the Bechdel Test failed most of these new tests. – Walt Hickey, Ella Koeze, Rachael Dottle & Gus Wezerek, FiveThirtyEight. More:
Thelma turns to Louise. “Something’s crossed over in me . . . and I can’t go back.” The road has awakened her. Road movies showcase an attempt to get outside the status quo of mainstream, conventional culture. – Laura Feinstein, Salon. More:
Dee Rees elevates her storytelling to a whole different level with ‘Mudbound’. Rarely do women, and particularly women of color, have the opportunity to tell epic stories. But damn, this movie is epic, complemented with extraordinary acting all around. It’s a post-WWII period piece about race that feels so relevant to today. – Melissa Silverstein, Women and Hollywood.

XX is a delightful, horrific variety pack — four risky and irreverent short films that pay homage to the tropes and traditions of horror filmmaking. It’s nuanced storytelling and solid genre filmmaking that also passes the Bechdel test, severed hand over bloody foot. — Rhienna Renée Guedry, Bitch Media.
If Wonder Woman does well on opening weekend, it sets a precedent for female-centered action films and female directors and we’ll see more of these stories on screens soon. Hollywood is a business that responds to box office. – Kirsten Schaffer, Women in Film. Read More:
Across the wildly diverse landscape of Indian cinema — spanning countless genres and nearly a dozen languages — women filmmakers are challenging the status quo, be it at the art house, regional cinema or from within mainstream Bollywood. — Nyay Bhushan, The Hollywood Reporter. Read More:
