Women Rocking Hollywood Panel San Diego Comic Con 2018

SDCCWomenRockingHollywood2018

The last year saw some forward movement for equality in front of and behind the camera. Women directors helmed more TV pilots than ever before. Will that trend continue? Will it result in more woman-directed and gender-balanced shows? In 2018, still only a fraction of studio films were directed by women, so how can lasting change be made? Some of the most successful, talented women in the industry will discuss their careers, latest projects, new initiatives, and how fans can be part of creating equality in film, TV, and all transmedia. Scheduled to appear: Kat Candler (showrunner/director, Queen Sugar, 12 Monkeys), Patricia Cardoso (director, Queen Sugar, Real Women Have Curves), Rosemary Rodriguez(producer/director, pilot Cagney & Lacey, Jessica Jones, The Walking Dead), Regina King (actress/director/producer, pilot The Finest, Shameless, Scandal), Patricia Riggen(producer/director, The 33, Jack Ryan), and Kirsten Schaffer (executive director, Women in Film: LA). Moderated by Leslie Combemale (Cinema Siren, The Credits).

 Women Rocking Hollywood 2017Women Directors Changing the Face of Film and Television 

Wonder Woman broke all records in Hollywood for a film helmed by a female director.  Now what? While there’s still a long way to go to equal the number of women behind the camera with women, who make up 51% of the population, shows like Jessica Jones, Queen Sugar, and The Leftovers are making a huge difference by committing to the inclusion of female directors. This 2nd annual panel at SDCC focuses on the incredibly talented, successful women expanding opportunities for women in film who have made noise and winning awards with their work on both the big and small screens. Scheduled to appear: Kirsten Schaffer (exec director, Women in Film: LA), Tina Mabry (writer/producer/director: Queen of the South, director: Dear White People), Rosemary Rodriguez (writer/director: Silver Skies, director: Jessica Jones, The Walking Dead), Victoria Mahoney (director: Queen Sugar, Gypsy, American Crime), Aurora Guerrero (writer/director: Mosquita y Mari, director: Queen Sugar), Angela Robinson (writer/director: Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, True Blood), and Gina Prince-Bythewood (writer/director: Love & Basketball, Beyond the Lights), the first woman of color hired to helm a superhero film for the upcoming Silver & Black.
