Film Fatales

Film Fatales is a diverse community of women filmmakers who meet regularly to mentor each other, share resources, collaborate on projects and build a supportive environment in which to make their films.

The organization was founded by Leah Meyerhoff in New York City in 2013 and has since inspired dozens of sister groups around the world. Every month, hundreds of women directors meet in local groups to share a meal, update each other on their projects, and engage in a moderated discussion about relevant topics in film.

In an industry where less than 5% of the top box office films are directed by women, Film Fatales provides a structure for women directors to support each other, share resources, and help get their films made and seen. In addition to the monthly meetings, Film Fatales supports a number of other collaborative programs including: panel discussions, industry recommendations, educational workshops, and numerous other special events.

Film Fatales has quickly become a grassroots community of collaboration and support. By offering space for mentorship, peer networking and direct participation, Film Fatales continues to promote the creation of more films by and about women.
