0 91

Pricey friends-

Somewhat over 15 years in the past I had a loopy thought: to attempt to begin a dialog asking the place the ladies have been in entrance of the digicam and behind the scenes in Hollywood. I known as my weblog Girls and Hollywood as a result of to me, Hollywood is all over the place. My exploration grew right into a calling that I by no means anticipated. It allowed me to journey throughout the globe talking with others who have been passionate about this problem. The work helped beginning the Athena Movie Competition, which is now a full-fledged teenager at 13 years outdated.

Fifteen years later, the dialog is absolutely embedded in our tradition and is roofed by mainstream shops. Girls, a few of whom bought their begin at Girls and Hollywood, are working in all kinds of roles throughout the business. It was not too way back that it was at all times a shock when a collection had a lady director as a part of its season. Now, it’s unacceptable in the event that they don’t. The work shouldn’t be performed, removed from it, however so as to proceed the revolution, evolution is critical.

It’s time for Girls and Hollywood 2.0.

As of April 1, The Girls and Hollywood weblog will now not be publishing unique tales. We are going to preserve the location stay as a result of it has develop into an amazing useful resource, significantly for college students of the business.

Haven’t any concern: I’ll nonetheless be launching the reality bombs and amplifying girls’s voices. However it is going to be another way. In Her Voice: A Girls and Hollywood Podcast will launch in April and it is going to be a spot the place I’ll cowl information and interview creatives. I’m excited to get again to speaking to the ladies who’re effecting change and nicely as these whose artistic visions are coming to our screens.

We are going to proceed the weekly publication of the Girls and Hollywood Publication of content material by and about girls and non-binary folks opening in theaters and streaming. The Women Membership, our group for girls and nonbinary creatives to attach and assist one another, is prospering.

Through the years, significantly by my work within the Artistic Growth Program on the Athena Movie Competition, I’ve realized that I not solely need to focus on the change that we have to see, however I need to be part of it. To that finish, I will likely be launching the Artistic Doula Program. Half strategic advisor, half doula, we would be the artistic advocates for these gifted voices and tasks written by girls or non-binary writers which have girls/women on the middle of the tales.

There are various folks to thank for the success of Girls and Hollywood. First thanks goes to the Dobkin Household Basis for its continued assist. There can be no Girls and Hollywood with out the Dobkin Household Basis. The workforce – writers, editors, fellows, interns, social media experts. No one does this work alone. I’ve been so fortunate to have individuals who cared concerning the work as passionately as I did, significantly Laura Berger, who satisfied me nearly a decade in the past that I wanted an intern and is now in control of every little thing that goes on the location. Everybody who has been part of the work over time has had an immense contribution in holding girls entrance and middle within the narrative.

I wouldn’t be capable of make this shift if I didn’t consider that I’d completed what I got down to do 15 years in the past. I couldn’t be extra thrilled that the dialog is prospering and strong and {that a} new technology has taken up the mantle and is pushing for an increasing number of change. I’m so excited to proceed to be part of this motion.
