Women filmmakers are *finally* getting the chance to showcase their talents thanks to the forward-thinking and inclusive She Does Filmz. By simply subscribing to the website you’ll be able to watch some of the very best in filmmaking by women, scoured from the world’s most prestigious film festivals and ready to watch on your devices.
Described as a “totally different type of cinema”, the films are deliberately varied with a huge variety of styles, themes and with female actors taking the leads in many cases. The site also showcases the best films from minority groups including The Watermelon Woman written, directed, and edited by Cheryl Dunye.
This ground-breaking film stars Dunye as Cheryl, a young, black lesbian who, between working her day job, is trying to make a film about a black actress from the 1930s. Sweet, romantic and funny, The Watermelon Woman was declared “an impressive landmark work” by Vanity Fair.
She Does Filmz was set up by film fans who noticed that work by women filmmakers received 67% less distribution than the work of their male counterparts. This is true of film schools, right the way to big studios.
Deciding it was time to make a change, She Does Filmz bridges that gap and brings iconic films past and present with no censorship, no taboos but with guaranteed film-festival quality.
