Guest Post: Supporting Women’s Voices in Independent Film

Jere Rae-Mansfield

Guest Post by Jere Rae-Mansfield

As a distributor of independent feature films for over 30 years, I have enjoyed watching women unite and rise to prominence in the film industry. Not only the titans who grace the pages of tabloids and red carpets, but those who make heartwarming, meaningful, or thought provoking productions through their ingenuity and perseverance.

Out of Monterey Media’s last nine films released, five were written, produced, and/or directed by extremely talented women. And they all feature a knack for distinctive storytelling, thoughtful choices for casts and crews, and resourcefulness of locations.

Distinctive Storytelling Capability

The ability to tell a story via film is unique in that different audiences view it through their own experiences. Many want to lose themselves in the moments of a film and others want to study it from a distance. Therefore, as a collective we look for a film that touches us in some way. Women filmmakers have a certain knack for hitting the emotional button with honesty and sometimes-unnerving authenticity.

As more women engage in the entire process of filmmaking (not only as the editors, writers, and performers who helped build and sustain the film community), stories are told from a voice that takes a different perspective on an issue or occasion or relationship.

At Sundance this year, “Transparent” showrunner Jill Soloway made a request for male directors: “Stop Making Movies About Rape.” Her reasons are her own, but essentially she asks, “What do men know about female rape?” She raises an interesting point. The same idea applies to stories about childbirth, motherhood, a mother’s loss of a child, and other women-specific topics.

I am curious: Would a film about whaling men written, directed and produced by women be widely accepted?

Thoughtful Casting and Crew Choices:

I was subtly reminded that in our newest release, “The Levelling” (written and directed by Hope Dickson Leach), choosing a talented female lead (Ellie Kendrick) — who plays a character with the intelligence, inner strength, and backbone to stand up, question, and persevere — provides the audience with a glimpse of a real person, one with the tenacity to move on and heal. More and more we are seeing female lead characters putting their experience and determination before their glamour or wardrobe.

Resourcefulness of Locations:

With limited budgets for indie films, women filmmakers are eager to assist each other, pitch in, and share information and contacts. They are not afraid to ask for location permission without fees, accommodations for their talent, or even to borrow costumes.

In Maggie Greenwald’s “Sophie and the Rising Sun,” produced by the all-women team of Nancy Dickenson, Lorraine Gallard, Brenda Goodman, and Greenwald, an entire small town in South Carolina was included in making the film in one manner or another. The locals welcomed the talent into their homes, offered meals, waived location fees, and generally embraced the film’s production.

The Evolving Landscape for Women

As women demand more control over their personal lives, it would seem that their careers are following suit and their skill sets are becoming more refined.

Being allowed to experiment in the independent film world is a stepping-stone to working on widely-distributed films and television. The indie community embraces that experimentation, as seen with two of our recent releases, based on short stories by James Franco and helmed by women directors/writers: “Yosemite,” directed by Gabrielle Demeestere, and “Memoria,” co-written and co-directed by Nina Ljeti. Ljeti, a former student of Franco’s, benefited from his guiding hand but made the film her own. She came up with the concept of shooting in 4.3 letterbox and financed the production via crowdfunding.

Women are the seeker-gatherers of our world. They find unique ways to survive and flourish in any environment — farms, suburbs, cities, and everything in between. They make patchwork families and create meals from whatever is in the refrigerator. Their willingness to adapt and determination to find solutions create an incredibly unique kind of filmmaking.

Jere Rae-Mansfield is Monterey Media’s CFO and Co-Managing Founder. After attending the University of California at San Diego, she became a working Screen Actors Guild member and an accomplished producer. Rae-Mansfield has advanced Monterey to solidify its current reputation in the independent film distribution arena. The company’s films have featured stars like James Franco, William Hurt, David Strathairn, Marcia Gay Harden, Michelle Monaghan, Famke Janssen, Bill Pullman, Forrest Whittaker, and Minnie Driver. Rae-Mansfield also directs Monterey’s outreach for philanthropic causes.

Review: The Levelling, Intense and Moving Portrait of Family Grief

30 March 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Social realism has always been the cornerstone of British cinema; the lives of the working classes  have been a mainstay for UK filmmakers for decades. In recent years, both the creators of these films, and the subjects, are increasingly women; directors such as Lynne Ramsay and Andrea Arnold have been adapting how we look at the lives of the British working classes. With her debut feature The Levelling, Hope Dickson Leach can confidently join those ranks with her quietly moving and sensitive, yet unsentimental portrait of grief, tragedy, and family conflict. Clover (Ellie Kendrick), just about to qualify as a veterinarian, returns to the family dairy farm after the sudden death of her brother James. Her father, whom she refers to by his first name...

Film Review: ‘The Levelling’

29 March 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From the unglamorous muddiness of its contemporary English farmland setting, to the lyrical interludes as nocturnal animals swim in murky waters and woodland creatures quiver in damp hedgerows, Hope Dickson Leach’s feature directorial debut is startlingly assured. “The Levelling” is an intimate story, waterlogged with guilt, grief and blame, but it explores this dark spectrum with such unsentimental honesty that its tiny moments of uplift, when its repressed characters form tentative connections despite themselves, are magnified and moving. Unlike so many first-timers, Dickson Leach, who also wrote the script, never allows her reach to exceed her grasp: she sets boundary markers around the edges of her territory and doesn’t stray beyond them. Instead she gets her hands dirty, bedding down into these difficult, truculent characters and plunging us deep into the chilly loam of her mournful, atmospheric story.

It starts with an ending. Clover (“Game of Thrones” actor »

TV Imports: The Best Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Acquired Series You’re Not Watching

24 February 2017 4:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In this era of “Peak TV” there doesn’t seem to be enough time to bother with drama and comedy imports. But while there are more than enough American shows to binge, it would be a mistake to bypass great foreign TV. After all, that would mean missing out on fan favorites like “Doctor Who,” “Orphan Black,” “Downton Abbey” and “Sherlock.”

Foreign TV has spawned hit U.S. adaptations like “Homeland” and “The Office,” as well as pale imitations of the original. Remember the failed American versions of “The It Crowd” and “Coupling”? Yeah, we’d like to forget ’em as well.
