  2. The State of Women in Film

    Film Market Panels / Panel / 90 mins
    With the recent #metoo and #timesup movement, the state of women in film has never been a hotter topic. Despite the influence of this movement, women still represent a small percentage of people in positions of power in the overall film industry. How do we change this? How does our own local film community fit into the puzzle? What can we do here locally to insure that women not only survive in this industry, but thrive? We'll answer these questions with some of San Diego's super powered women who are making things happen in spite of the odds. Featuring Sue Vicory (My Power of One, Heartland Films) , Jodi Cilley (Film Consortium San Diego, San Diego Film Awards) Lori Jones (Producer, Actress) and Tonya Mantooth (San Diego International Film Festival)
