Pam Powell talks women filmmakers at Sundance: ‘We are making progress’

FF2 Media Senior Contributor and Film Critic Pamela Powell had the opportunity to be interviewed by Al Jazeera English TV out of LA about women in film at the Sundance Film Festival. With an increase of women in the director’s chair (timely, given the #MeToo Movement) Powell notes that conversation regarding opportunities for women were discussed immediately by Sundance founder Robert Redford, “Men, let’s just sit back and we’ll listen.”

Powell notes the small increase in female directors and writers this year, rising from one-third of the total films to 38 percent. “A nice increase; we have a little ways to go,” she said, “but we are making some progress.”
