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.
An interactive workshop with writer/director Catherine Hardwicke (Cabinet of Curiosities, Mafia Mamma, Twilight, Miss Bala, Lords of Dogtown, Thirteen). Celebrated writer and director Catherine Hardwicke discussed her journey from pre-production to final screening in this interactive workshop. Ready Set Prep took us through her detailed preparation process for film and television projects, including clips, storyboards, shot lists, rehearsal practices, drawings, and more. Attendees left with the tools to set themselves up for success on their next project. With support from community partners Film Independent, Film at Lincoln Center, Ghetto Film School, The Cherry Picks, The Jane Club, and The Wrap.
We recommend underrepresented creators for jobs, funding and distribution opportunities through our Parity Pipeline initiative and amplify marginalized voices through our weekly Speaker Series about craft, the creative process, and the push towards parity on screen and off. We continue to raise the visibility of marginalized directors by highlighting their work in our Streaming Library and beyond.
