    Hollywood Feminists of the Day: Chris O'Dowd and Jon Hamm - The Guys from Friends with Kids

    It's not very often that I think about a movie several weeks after I've seen it, but I have had Friends with Kids on my mind.  The more I think about it, the more I like it.  It's just an adult film that's funny.  One that Hollywood rarely makes anymore and when it doe...

    Guest Post: Just Do It: One Woman’s Journey to Making a Feature

    I wish someone had told me when I started out that if you want to make a feature, you need to find a way to do it.  Don’t wait for permission.  Don’t wait for someone to recognize your brilliance and hand you money.  Use what you’ve got and make it.

    Interview with Megan Griffiths - Director of SXSW Audience Winner Eden

    I was a little late to finding out about Eden but I am glad I did. It's a really good and interesting film on a difficult topic -- sex trafficking. We all think the sex trafficking occurs over there in countries far, far away. But it happens here ALL THE TIME. This film is based on a true st...

    Guest Post: Losing Control on the Way to Distribution

    Filmmakers are often told, write what you know. And I know a lot about being so attached to a plan that it can be difficult to move forward when it isn’t working. So, as my protagonist was trying to learn the titular lesson in my quirky romantic comedy, LOSING CONTROL, about a female scientist...

    Interview with the Director Kristy Guevara-Flanagan and Producer Kelcey Edwards of Wonder Woman - The Untold Story of American Superheroines

    I am one of those girls who grew up watching Wonder Woman and The Bionic Woman.  I loved those shows.  The feminist in me was alive way back then when Lynda Carter and Lindsey Wagner were kicking butt on TV in the 70s.  Of course I never realized how revolutionary those shows were at ...

    Cross Post: Nina Menkes - Cinema as Sorcery

    I have fallen in love with Nina Menkes.  Her films have taken me there, in their descent to the depths of her psyche, and by way of hers, to my own.  I continue falling in love with her as she shares her experience of making her art.  She speaks of her films as dreams that she interpr...

    Interview with Jennifer Westfeldt - Writer and Director of Friends With Kids

    Friends With Kids - Written and Directed by Jennifer Westfeldt

    What's interesting about Friends with Kids is that Jennifer Westfeldt has the skills to make a film feel subversive and mainstream at the same time.  The story she tells (which she also produces and directs) is about best friends who want a kid even though they haven't found the partner...
