Stronger Together: Film Fatales

Monday, March 16
2:00PM - 3:00PM

InterContinental Stephen F. Austin
701 Congress Ave


As audiences increasingly value authentic new stories with women at their centers, female writers and directors are finding more ways to collaborate to bring these narratives to the screen. Based in New York, with chapters sprouting up across the globe, Film Fatales is a collective of female filmmakers who have written or directed at least one feature narrative or documentary film. By offering a space for mentorship, peer networking and direct participation, Film Fatales hopes to promote the creation of more stories by and about women. Join these successful female feature directors to find out how they got their films made and what they are doing to close the gender gap in film.
