Media That Matters Presents Women & Girls Matter
Saturday, October 29th
9:30 a.m. ‰ÛÒ 6:00 p.m.
SOCDOC (136 W 21st St. 1st Floor, NYC)

We have heard the unnerving statistics: In commercial film, only 7 percent of directors, 6 percent of directors of photography, and 20 percent of producers are female. Women fare slightly better in documentary, where they make up 28% of directors and 11% of directors of photography. Still, the figures are dismal.
Women and Girls Matter, a day of panels and workshops at Media That Matters䋢, is designed to look at the obstacles and opportunities for women and girls in filmmaking and new media, highlighting the values women bring to their work, and open up a dialogue for ways to create new spaces for female voices in the field.
While the day focuses on the needs of women in film, we hope to conclude the day with concrete actions for participants to take to help bring the voices of women and girls out of the margins and into the mainstream.
Arts Engine is hoping in the next year to sponsor more events focusing on women & girls in film and new media. The dialogue generated at the event will help shape the direction of those activities.
