Our CEO, Jennifer Buonantony, was recently asked to moderate the “Forging a Future for Females Filmmakers” panel at Hollyshorts Film Festival featuring panelists from Women In Film (WIF), Film Fatales and Ms. In The Biz .
The goal of the panel was to discuss how female filmmakers can collaborate, cross-promote and build a community. The panel was held at Ignited Spaces in Hollywood and featured Helenna Santos (Founder/CEO Ms. In The Biz), Leah Cevoli -(Ms. In The Biz Public Appearances Coordinator), Emily Lobsenz (Film Fatales, Partnerships), Shaz Bennett (Film Fatales, LA Chapter Leader) and Rupa Dash (Executive, World Women Foundation)
While female filmmakers have made great strides in the entertainment industry over the years, there’s still much more work to be done. Hollyshorts believes the first step is opening discussions like these to figure out how to create new opportunities as well as reach outside your own networks to collaborate with other female filmmakers.
