I’m in the middle of getting the call to entries ready, and was thinking about other types of actions and interventions there have been in the film world. This Guerilla Girls billboard in 2006 was pretty major–OK, it’s essentialist, and I’m guessing their 7% was studio films only, and YES I KNOW that a woman has won the directing Oscar since then, although, let’s talk, she is a woman who makes movies about masculinity–but I wonder if it did much. I feel like if I was a filmmaker and saw it I would be like, well, I’m screwed. I probably would have written a pointed letter to the editor! Because that’s what I do! Sarah would have been soooo into it though. We’ve posted her S.T.I.G.M.A. manifesto here before–it’s worth reading, especially if you are applying this year.
