2:00-3:00pm Women Rocking Hollywood 2024: Female Filmmakers Breaking Barriers & Breaking Records

Greta Gerwig’s Barbie was the top grossing film of 2023 and is now the highest grossing comedy of all time. Barbie and 2023 releases like Polite Society, Joy Ride, Saltburn, and Past Lives show female filmmakers can and do create blockbusters, great films, and soon-to-be classics, whether or not they get recognized at awards time. Women are also excelling on the small screen. So why are the numbers of women hired by studio projects still so small, especially for women of color? We talk to creative, successful women in film about the way forward, and how gains through SAG/Aftra and the DGA are helping increase the percentage in Hollywood and beyond. Scheduled to appear and discuss the state of the business and their exciting new projects are Erica Tremblay (writer/director, Reservation Dogs, Fancy Dance), Anna Halberg (writer, House/Wife, director, the upcoming Tarot), Amy Greene (producer/stunt coordinator, The Holdovers, stunt coordinator/executive producer, Somewhere in Queens), Anna Biller (writer/director/producer, The Love Witch, the upcoming The Face of Horror), and Andria Wilson Mirza (director, Women in Film’s ReFrame, producer, Queen of My Dreams). Moderated by Leslie Combemale (founder, Women Rocking Hollywood, lead contributor, The Alliance of Women Film Journalists). Room 207
