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).
