Women Film-makers

Ava Duvernay-On Independent Film

I don’t know how many of y’all out there read BITCH magazine but they posted this wonderful article titled ‘A personal reminder that women have what it takes to make film‘ accompanied by this video of Ava Duvernay delivering the film-maker keynote address at the 2013 Film Independent Forum.

She talks through some of her personal issues that prevented her from becoming the film-maker she wanted to be and how she overcame them. Definitely worth the 42:54, I would recommend watching this to anyone-female or not, that is interested in a career within film.
