BIG NEWS FOR CANADIAN WOMEN IN FILM!!!

 

Waaaahoooo!

I love this post. Instead of talking about the ingrained sexism present in the film and television industry, I come bearing exciting and encouraging news- the best kind! The National Film Board of Canada has committed to allocating 50% of its production spending to women producers, writers, and generally just women led projects. They are making it a priority to invest in women- This is HUGE!

Word on the street is, over the next three years, the NFB is going to be on the lookout for women driven projects to invest in to support the goal of diversity and inclusion in the film industry in Canada.

I love to bring you such exciting news. I hope that it inspires you the way that it has me. Now is the time, more than ever, we need to be in communication and collaboration with each other to create amazing content. To learn more, go to the National Film Board of Canada. Comment below and let us know how you feel about this promise of resources to women filmmakers in Canada, and please share with all the creative boss ladies in your life who may need a little encouragement.
