Penny's Picks: 50 Movies by Women Filmmakers is Jan's new book published December 17, 2011 & available now on Amazon.
What accounts for the lack of movies by women filmmakers in your multiplex? As readers of this compilation will quickly discover, many wonderful films written and/or directed by women have been released in the past decade. Despite all the obstacles, many women have, in fact, completed their films, and that is not the problem.
The films are there, but what's missing is the audience.
Through our support for women filmmakers, we can redefine what consumers everywhere get to see on their movie screens.
In the words of Martha Lauzen: "If we change media messages, we can change the world."
