Women in Film Speaker Series - "The Director's Panel"

  • West Hollywood City Council Chambers 625 N. San Vicente Bld. West Hollywood, CA 90069 (map)

Another year, another slate of all-male directors nominated for Academy Awards. As an antidote to this persistent issue, we've assembled a group of talented female directors who work in film and television to talk about the art and craft of directing. These women are turning stereotypes, genre and the industry on its head. Come hear about their latest projects and stories from the forefront of the movement to bring diversity to Hollywood.

The panel features Lake Bell (In A World, Children's Hospital); Nisha Ganatra (Chutney Popcorn, Shameless); Jennifer Phang (Advantageous; and will be moderated by producer Effie Brown (Dear White People, Project Greenlight).

The Women in Film Speaker Series is generally held monthly on the 4th Monday of the month. It is co-sponsored by the West Hollywood Women's Advisory Board.
