TCM, Women in Film LA Shine Light on Female Contributions to Movies

Turner Classic Movies has set a deal with Women in Film Los Angeles for a three-year programming initiative designed to address the lack of gender equality in the film biz and highlight the contributions of women behind the camera.

The partnership will include programming in the month of October for the next three years that will focus on work done by women outside of the acting realm.

“The issue of gender inequality in the film industry is both timely and immensely important to shine a light on, and through this programming effort TCM is proactively taking a deeper look at the role of women in our industry as well as providing insight and resources to inspire more women filmmakers,” said Jennifer Dorian, g.m. of TCM.

Details of the programming plans, announced Tuesday night at WIF LA’s Crystal + Lucy Awards gala, are sparse. WIF president Cathy Schulman said the effort will also offer tools and information to help women advance their careers.

“For years, I have dreamed of having a network reach out to our organization with a true interest in our advocacy and the ability to collaborate on programming that will reach audiences everywhere. Now, thanks to TCM, that dream is real,” Schulman said.
