Cady McClain Presents....The 'Women Direct' Newsletter

Cady McClain's documentary "Seeing is Believing: Women Direct" won the Audience Award for Best Feature at the SOHO International Film Festival in New York City. The short version won a Jury Award in the Best Documentary category at the Newport Beach Film Festival.

The following statement was provided by the Emmy-winning actress. 

Hi friends!

Thanks for checking back in to the Women Direct Newsletter! More exciting news to share this month, so lets get right to it!

History was made this month when Victoria Mahoney was named director of the next Star Wars film AND it was announced that Cathy Yan will be the director of the new Harley Quinn spinoff! FEMALES ARE KICKIN' ASS AND TAKING NAMES!

In Seeing is Believing: Women Direct news, we have finished color and sound edit/mix on the new 84 minute version of the documentary and are finalizing our new animations and titles by the amazing Xaviera Lopez (check out some cool GIFS she created below!)

In other news, thanks to Women in Film I was invited to shadow on a commercial being directed by Lucy Walker, who is a terrific filmmaker. It was an honor to be there and watch her in action!

I'm also now volunteering for the Alliance of Women Directors as their festival outreach chairperson. I’m excited to be able to help more film festivals have a connection to the amazing female directors who are members of AWD, and to continue the awesome work that has helped make 2017 a banner year for female filmmakers!
