Keep an eye on this link https://www.facebook.com/loadingdocs?fref=ts and on the WIFT website for the Loading Docs announcement in the next few days so you can see the list of projects selected for this year's showcase.
Meanwhile here are a few cheering facts from the Loading Docs team that should encourage us all, especially female directors! This is what equality looks like and we like it...
The gender spread of submissions to Loading Docs had 48% assigned a woman Director to the project. (either solo or as a co-director)
50% of submissions had a woman assigned as Producer. (either solo or as co-producer)
Of the successful applications 6 of the 10 films have a woman assigned as Director. (either solo or as a co-director)
50% of the successful submissions had a woman assigned as Producer. (either solo or as co-producer)
(nb. Multiple applications by the same team were counted as individual statistical events.)
