#52FilmsByWomen I took the pledge to watch a film directed by a woman once a week for 52 weeks

52Films-5

 

 

#52FilmsByWomen, the brainchild of Women In Film LA (WIFLA),  is a fun way to bring attention to the many talented female filmmakers around the world, and a great way to spark a creative and interactive conversation.  I pledged to take the #52FilmsByWomen challenge in October 2015.  I’m sure my viewing will be in fits and starts, but one thing is for sure, I will reach 52 films before the 52 weeks is up!
