ISSUE THREE THEME:  WOMEN or the female gaze or gender gap (we aren’t sure what the exact title will be)

Throughout history, the voice of the female artist has been overlooked, neglected and erased. Screenwriters are no exception. And if we dig deep enough, we’ll find that Hollywood relied heavily on female screenwriters during its height of productivity. Although the exclusive positions of producer and director were (and still are) often reserved for men, the brains behind some of our all-time favourite films were female.

Furthermore, there is an inherent absurdity in even focusing on women for an issue. We want to talk about this. Send us your thoughts and ideas.

For our third issue, we’re focussing on stories led by women. We’re looking for work by women, or that explores the female gaze and its history in cinema..
