Katie Shapiro: Female Filmmakers Steal Sundance Spotlight
Huffington Post - about 4 years
This year the Sundance Film Festival was all about the ladies. OK, maybe halfway about the ladies, which is still a very good sign. For the first time ever, eight of the 16 directors in the U.S. dramatic competition were women. Another promising sign was the timely release of an official study conducted by the Sundance Institute and Women in Film exploring both the barriers and opportunities for women independent filmmakers. The roster included: Lynn Shelton's Touchy Feely, starring Rosemarie DeWitt and Ellen Page; Francesca Gregorini's Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes, starring Jessica Biel; Liz Garcia's The Lifeguard, starring Kristen Bell; Jerusha Hess's Austenland starring Keri Russell; Stacie Passon's Concussion and Cherien Dabis' May in the Summer. But the heads of this class were Lake Bell's In a World and Jill Soloway's Afternoon Delight, both of which took home top honors at Sundance's awards ceremony. Although strides were made in the category mentioned a ...

Sundance Lineup Includes Record Number Of Female Filmmakers
Huffington Post - about 4 years
LOS ANGELES — The Sundance Film Festival has an apparent record lineup of female directors competing for its top honor this January. Half the entries – eight of the 16 films – announced Wednesday in the festival's U.S. dramatic competition were directed by women for the next installment of Robert Redford's independent-cinema showcase, which runs Jan. 17-27 in Park City, Utah. Going back to 1992, the best showing previously for female filmmakers was in 2000, when six of the 16 U.S. dramatic contenders were directed by women. Sundance organizers were still trolling back to the early years of the festival's 33-year history, but this January's eight competition films appears to be most ever from women and the first time the entries have been evenly split between female and male directors. Among the competition films from female filmmakers are Francesca Gregorini's "Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes," whose cast includes Jessica Biel and Frances O'Connor in the ...

Gregorini and von Furstenberg also co-wrote the independent film, loosely based on their own adolescent experiences. Gregorini said in an interview, "Naturally there are some autobiographical elements, combined with things we'd witness in boarding school, and many other parts that we made up completely. You will certainly find characteristics of both of us in each of the four main girls and if you spend even a half-hour with us, it will be very apparent to you, which girls are most like me and which ones are most like Tatiana." The film was an official selection at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival.
