“Made in Her Image” Empowers Future Women Filmmakers

According to research by the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, only five women of colour worked as directors on the 1,000 top-grossing films between 2007 and 2016. And women comprised only 5% of directors in the top 250 films in 2017.  Made in Her Image is working to change these statistics. Although all girls are welcome, Made in Her Image focuses on girls and non-conforming gender binary youth of colour.

Founded in 2018 the organisation will be hosting its first two film camps for girls this summer. The first will be in Phoenix, Arizona, and the second will be in Los Angeles. The 3-4 day camps will happen in June and July 2018.
