ATTENTION ALL WOMEN INVOLVED IN LOUISIANA FILM INDUSTRY
- ATTENTION WOMEN INVOLVED IN FILM INDUSTRY:
"The film and television industry is booming in Louisiana. As women
within this industry, we are honing our craft, developing our artistry,
and tackling professional and creative challenges. Collectively we have
created hundreds of films, television shows, and new media. Our work is
challenging and diverse. We are Producers. Art Directors. Independent
Filmmakers. Set Dressers. Production Assistants. Editors. Location
Scouts. Executives. Gaffers. Production Coordinators. Actors. Shooters.
Script Supervisors. Costume Designers. Mentors. Audio Mixers. Lawyers.
Students. Stuntwomen. Writers. We are collaborators. We are all unique.
This is an opportunity to share our stories.
Women in Film & Television Louisiana is delighted to announce that we
will be mounting an exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Center in July
2013, titled A Woman's Work, which celebrates in moving pictures the
work of women in film, television and digital media in Louisiana.
A Woman's Work, co-curated by WIFT Louisiana and the CAC, will include
the exhibition of moving image work - films, videos and new media - made
by women in Louisiana. WIFT Louisiana is currently accepting submissions
of short or long-form projects for consideration as part of this
exhibition. The work can be from any time period and we encourage the
submission of works in progress. The exhibition is meant to show the
process of work in this industry and the films submitted need not be
finished. We welcome works in progress and documentation of a
day-in-a-life, "making-of," and behind-the-scenes of films in production
as well as completed work.
All work will be reviewed and selected by the curatorial committee. The
final deadline to receive submissions is Thursday, May 16, 2013. The
deadline is tight so please submit ASAP. Submissions must have been
produced in the state of Louisiana. There is no restriction as to when
production occurred. It is not necessary to be a WIFT Louisiana member
to participate, but we encourage all eligible women to join by emailing
