Gender Disparity

Women Directors

Several studies and reams of statistics show what’s obvious at a gut level: there aren’t nearly as many women directing movies as men, and there probably aren’t nearly as many women directing as want to be. What are we missing out on as a culture as a result? How do we help to fix the problem? Is there even a problem that we can fix, and if so, how do we each define it? Today on the show we’ll speak with writer/director Beth Schacter about her experiences and how the industry can work toward a truly balanced meritocracy. We’ll also briefly highlight Tangerine Entertainment and speak with Filminism columnist Jenni Miller and Movies.com editor Peter Hall about women directors who’ve earned a bigger spotlight. For more from us on a daily basis, follow Beth (@bethshax), Jenni (@msjennimiller), Peter (@petershall), the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on the Twitter. And, as always, we welcome your feedback. Download Episode #14 Directly Or subscribe Through iTunes
