I have had the good fortune of working with Reel Women for several years. They are a very important part of Austin's film community.
Reel Women has been a driving force in opening the doors for opportunities in film for women in Austin, Texas and beyond. So often the woman's story is bypassed by mainstream media. Not only does Reel Women offer viable opportunities to showcase the work of women, but they are a cohesive, unifying and empowering force in the film scene here in Austin for all who participate.
I have lived in Austin Tx since 1999 and joined Reel Women in the years since I have been here. They continue to offer workshops and information that inspires me to keep making films. A difficult task in itself, but the support of ongoing guest speakers and resources is a huge benefit to this community of creative women and men.
