WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP ROLES
It is extremely important to bring equality to this industry, because film and television make up a large portion of the narrative from which our society teaches and learns.
Women Making a Scene promotes equality and inclusivity in modern media by requiring each participating team to have a woman in a leadership position.
When submitting films to festivals or competitions, filmmakers have come to expect either no response, or a template-based mass email from headquarters if their film doesn't make the cut.
Women Making a Scene will be proactive on this front as well. Each submission will be thoughtfully replied to by our judging team. This feedback will ensure a positive learning experience that can be applied to the filmmakers' continued work.
FILM BUDGET FOR THE WINNER
Women Making a Scene is the first filmmaking competition of its kind to offer a legitimate budget to produce a feature film.
Other film competitions offer trips and small cash prizes to the makers of short films that have been produced under time and genre restraints. We are offering a chance for filmmakers to realize their dreams of producing their feature film with a realistic budget. This will create film jobs for people of all genders, and initiate positive change in a socially impactful industry.
