8 November 2011 9:53 AM, PST

As a long-time documentary producer, I’ve come across countless films about war and conflict. But few of those narratives captured the larger picture of warfare. War Redefined, the final episode of the five-part series Women, War & Peace (which airs tonight- check your local PBS listings), tells the story of modern war in its totality – and shows how women are at the forefront of conflict in ways that few of us realized. »

The Academy Has a Brett Ratner Problem

8 November 2011 8:15 AM, PST

Oh boy does the Academy have a public relations problem and that problem is the guy they hired to produce the show Brett Ratner.  One of the problems they have with him is that he has become the story and that is going to dog the whole awards season.  People are going to be waiting to hear what sexist, racist or homophobic thing that will come out of his mouth.  And he is such an equal opportunity offender that it won't take too long for him to fuel the fire.  Hey he's batitng three for three having made a homophobic, sexist and racist remark all in the last couple of days.  »

Do We Still Need Women's Film Festivals?

7 November 2011 8:10 AM, PST

If you look around the landscape of film festivals there are many women's films festivals all across the world. But those who work in that area are struggling especially during these difficult economic times. I've been to a women's film festival in Germany that survived budget cuts and put on a great edition last spring that was embraced by the community and the local politicians. I've been to a festival in Romania that wasn't a women's film festival but had a section on female directors and those films were very strong, as strong, or stronger than the films in the… »

Hollywood Feminist of the Day: Gemma Arterton

7 November 2011 7:00 AM, PST

This is the third time that Gemma has gotten this mention. This young woman talks about being a feminist in her interviews and embraces it unlike any other high profile female actresses. She talks about feminism because it is so comfortable to her. She talks about it because that is who she is. And let's be real. It doesn't necessarily help her career to talk about these issues which include her criticizing the industry. But she does it. And she is an actress on the rise. She's done big movies (Quantum of Solace and Prince of Persia) and small movies… »

A New IndieWire

7 November 2011 5:45 AM, PST

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that IndieWire will be getting a new look as of this evening. It's going to look sleeker and will have much improved navigation among many different upgrades. The good news for us IndieWire bloggers is that there will be a huge improvement on the back end and it will make it easier to post and the site will have more bells and whistles. So as you can imagine that means that there will be a couple of days if not weeks of transition as the site moves into a new system. So… »
