Women directors only accounted for 4% of the top 100 grossing films in 2018. What resources can we provide to female VR directors to ensure this doesn’t happen in this emerging field?
I executive produced UN Women SF’s first ever VR Film Festival, creating a platform for new filmmakers to share women led narratives with top entertainment and technology executives.
We hosted close to 200 attendees at GoPro HQ, gathered top executives from Oculus and Vive for lively discussion, and, together with the UN Women Film Festival, fundraised more than $10,000 for UN Women programs. It’s since become an annual event that regularly showcases immersive work from women directors around the world.
