Let's start by inviting ALL our film loving friends HERE to the #DirectedbyWomen campaign page on Seed&Spark. Let's demonstrate to the film world that people will GO OUT OF THEIR WAY to show love for films #DirectedbyWomen.
Let's expand from the 100 EARLY ADOPTERS (thanks, early adopters!) to include THOUSANDS of film lovers in a show of appreciation for women filmmakers. From there we can all make plans for local (or online) film viewing parties and have an incredible party.
We're throwing a global party... and you're invited!
It's a worldwide celebration of women filmmakers and their work.
Mark your calendars for September 1 - 15, 2015!
