Building our Audience.

I’ve recently read a couple of articles I want to share.

The Christian Science Monitor printed a piece in May entitled For Indie Filmmakers, the Trick is Finding an Audience that nails the challenges faced by filmmakers like me and films like The Hollywood Librarian.

Then the delightful Mary Pols at the Contra Costa Times (a fine paper, imo) wrote this article about the dearth of women directors in Hollywood’s movie machine that I think is both true and disgusting. I’m, once again, outraged by the endlessly Fixed Games men play. [Note: It’s not that I’m interested in being a filmmaker — I made a film — I’m disgusted as a woman because once again, the boys make it so they get to keep all the money and all the prizes.]

Comments welcome.
