The creation of the lab, and Streep’s involvement in its founding, was announced Sunday at a panel discussion presented as part of the Tribeca Film Festival.
Called the Writers Lab, the screenplay development program aims to increase opportunities for female screenwriters over the age of 40. This year the initiative will accept submissions May 1-June 1, with eight winning scribes named Aug. 1.
Among the mentors to participate in the Lab’s inaugural year are writer-director Gina Prince-Bythewood (“Beyond the Lights”), producer Caroline Kaplan (“Boyhood”), and writers Kirsten Smith (“Legally Blonde”) and Jessica Bendinger (“Bring It On”).
According to Nywift, Streep ponied up a “significant” contribution to fully fund the Lab. The actress has been a longtime supporter of Nywift.

Kirsty Capes with six British movies and TV shows to get you in the mood for the General Election…
Despite being a lover of all things available on the big and small screens, Jeremy Paxman and Dimbleby don’t really do it for me as entertaining television. Many of us are sick to the back teeth of watching our glorious Pm candidates squirm under the fluorescent lights of the ITV television studios, or questions about the NHS. While it’s quite nice to laugh at the incompetence of our delightful parliamentary hopefuls and imagine moulding their play-dough-esque faces into different kinds of rotting fruit (just me?), there’s plenty of other ways to get excited for #GE2015 without wanting to throttle yourself with your own hair. Take a browse, for example, through a catalogue of fantastic television and film – where no one fluffs their lines and nearly everyone is better looking than David Cameron. »

It's been quite some time since we've seen Carey Mulligan on the red carpet, but the actress was as gorgeous as ever when she arrived for the London premiere of her new film, Far From the Madding Crowd, on Wednesday. Carey sparkled in a Dior dress and was all smiles and glowing while posing for photos alone and with her handsome costar Matthias Schoenaer. The last time we saw Carey, she was decidedly less dolled up; in late March, she and husband Marcus Mumford were spotted taking a stroll through the streets of NYC; Carey has been stationed in the Big Apple while performing in Skylight on Broadway, and just this week, we got a gripping look at her next project, Suffragette, which she stars in with Meryl Streep. Take a look at the trailer here, and scroll through for more photos of Carey on the red carpet. »

Check it out below after the official synopsis…
“Suffragette” is a moving drama that will empower all who are striving for equal rights in our own day and age.

Realizing that she is not alone, she becomes an activist alongside other brave women from all walks of life.

Whenever Meryl Streep takes a new role, ears of filmgoers everywhere perk up. Suffragette definitely makes a case for Streep's keen script-choosing abilities. She plays Emmeline Pankhurst, a legendary activist in the fight for female voting rights. Carey Mulligan stars opposite her as a young woman getting involved in the movement, and the first teaser makes the film seem pretty powerful. It's only 20 seconds long, but it's enough to make you want to see a full trailer. The teaser has been released to further the #VotingMatters campaign occurring in the UK right now (their elections are coming up), so if you're not in the UK, pay no mind to the release date that flashes after the footage. It's actually due out in theaters in the Us on Oct. 30! »
The election cycle here in Blighty is in full swing, so it seems the right time to look back at a much more vital and impassioned part of political history, the Suffragette movement. A teaser trailer for Sarah Gavron’s Suffragette is now online. Boasting quite the cast – Meryl Streep, Carey Mulligan, Helen Bonham Carter, Romola Garai, Anne-Marie Duff, Brendan Gleeson and Ben Whishaw among them – Suffragette follows the struggles of suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst (Streep) and the campaigners around her, who lead an early feminist movement to get equality in voting at a time when women were considered ill-mannered to vote. While their cause was just, it was also not an easy thing to try to turn the giant iceberg that was British politics at the time. The personal cost was great, but the results speak for themselves. It’s just a quick look at this point, but with that cast, »
Eager to strike while the hot-button topic steals the headlines in the UK ahead of the general election on May 9, Focus Features has debuted the first teaser for political drama Suffragette, which sees Carey Mulligan and Meryl Streep taking a stand for women’s rights during the early 1900s.
As a matter of fact, the studio has even gone so far as to incorporate the marketing for the real-life drama with the #VotingMatters campaign, intertwining the old with the new. Not only that, with close to 9 million women not taking part in the vote in 2010, there’s greater impetus to attract more to the polling stations on this occasion, and Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane) will be hoping to offer up a hard-hitting perspective on the matter through her cinematic analogy.
Following Mulligan’s feminist Maud, a hard working mother, the film will orbit around her realization that she must take »

Film 4 has released the first Suffragette trailer online. Written by Abi Morgan (Shame) and directed by Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane), the film stars Carey Mulligan as a working-class women’s rights activist in the early days of the feminist movement. As you can see from this trailer, this isn’t just marching with signs. This is throwing rocks and getting hardcore when it comes to fighting for voting rights. It’s an encouraging trailer because it looks like it will get to the nitty-gritty of the suffragist movement rather than just ladies marching around with signs.

Here's the official synopsis: Suffragette is a thrilling drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they »

It’s easy to take for granted the right to vote when you don’t remember ever not having it. In truth, women won that right less than a century ago in the U.S. and the U.K. And though the victory feels inevitable in retrospect, it was a painful struggle at the time. In the first Suffragette trailer, Carey Mulligan […]
