Social Media Discussions on Women in Films

Since April of 2015, we've also been hosting two types of twitter chats. The first, co-hosted often with the lovely women of The Bitch Pack, works to highlight films made by women and with women-centered or focused stories. Our innaugural watch was The Babadook by first time director, Jennifer Kent. In May, we watched A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, which was written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour. Coming up we'll be hopefully looking to more films, including the HBO original Bessie. The tag to join us on is #WomenWatchFilms so look to our twitter for updates on when our next watch-along will be. Similarly, bloggers, Katie Tabeling and Taylor Deblase, have started a young adult film themed watch-along series to highlight strong leading ladies of the YA film set. That tag is #LegendaryYAWatch and we started in May with Beautiful Creatures and in June of 2015 will be analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bone.
