ArcLight Cinemas to Launch Women in Entertainment Workshop Series

ArcLight Cinemas to Launch Women in Entertainment Workshop Series | Segway | Scoop.it
ArcLiight Cinemas will launch its Arclight Women in Entertainment Workshop Series, hosted by ArcLight exec vp Gretchen McCourt, on May 17-19 at the Sonoma Wine Garden in Santa Monica.
CK Love's insight:
I don't think we need a "workshop series"! We need funding and big names behind our stories and work! 

Arclight how about hosting and sponsoring studios helmed by women for film by women. 

Why do we need that? Because it is still an uphill climb to generate interest in female lead and majority female cast films in main stream studios. As female-centric studios grow they will burgeon into an all-inclusive studio that produces work that embraces all. But for now - we don't need workshops, we need someone to fund, support, sponsor, host places and environments where we can get our job done! 

Thank you!
