“The More is Inside”… A Celebration and Discussion of Women Filmmakers

Women, veteran and new, in film industry gathered during the Sundance Film Festival to discuss women’s roles in the film industry and possibilities of what the future holds for women’s place in the world. The article also opens up an important line of discussion as far as women are concerned: we need to have each other’s backs, regardless of profession, ethnicity, religion, or self-identifiers. We need to support each other now more than ever. We need to stop competing. Yes, acknowledge the problems. Absolutely. And there are plenty of them. But let’s work together to fix them. That’s the beauty of cinema; it provides a space for all people to come to the table, contribute, and learn about/from one another so that we can leave this world better than we found it. Perhaps that’s a dose of naïveté talking, but I’m optimistic about the possibilities of what people can accomplish when we learn to work together despite our differences.
