Film Fatales is a non profit arts organization which advocates for parity in the film industry and supports a membership community of over a thousand feature film and television directors of all marginalized genders. We advocate for hiring equality and inclusive programming practices by working with key decision makers to expand the talent pool and raise the visibility of underrepresented creators. Together we can build a more equitable film industry for us all.
