NYU alumni hit the ground running at the start of this year’s film festival circuit. In, “18 Women Filmmakers on Gender and Representation in Hollywood,” Buzzfeed’s Jarett Wieselman asked 18 directors, with new work at SXSW in Austin, Texas to comment on the state of the industry. Highlighted here are two of those women – both of whom directed and wrote comedies. Janicza Bravo, director of Lemon, spent half her life in Panama and half in Brooklyn. She studied directing, and design for theater, at NYU’s Playwrights Horizons Theater School.
NYU alumna and recent graduate of the Tisch film school, Laura Terruso, had a big hit at South by South West last year with Hello, My Name is Doris (which she co-wrote with Michael Showalter), and is following it this season as the director and writer of Fits & Starts starring Wyatt Cenac and Greta Lee. To check out these filmmakers, and their 16 contemporaries, read the full article here: Buzzfeed.

Join us for our new foreign film series starting on February 17th!
About the Series: In our increasingly fractured world, multiple perspectives are more important than ever, and women’s views of our existence must reach more screens. CALA’s spring film series features the works of six international female filmmakers, ranging from Iciar Bollain’s Flores De Otro Mundo (Flowers from Another World, 1999), about three single women searching for love in the patriarchal society of rural Spain to Huang Shuqin’s Woman Demon Human (1987) about a young actress in China who, as she becomes more famous, demands to play traditional “male” roles. The series also includes Margareth von Trotta’s Hannah Arendt (2012), a portrait of the political theorist and influential thinker during her controversial coverage of Nazi officer Adolf Eichmann’s war crimes trial at Nuremberg for The New Yorker. Pam Katz, who wrote the screenplay, will present the film. All of the films are introduced by NYU faculty and are shown at various venues, including Casa Italiana and Scandinavia House.
