WE WANT YOUR POINT OF VIEW
Just 11 percent of all directors on the 500 top-grossing domestic films are women. That number is only slightly higher—32 percent—on short films. Because we are committed to supporting female filmmakers—not just by talking about the gender gap, but by actually helping close it in a meaningful way—Glamour and Girlgaze have joined forces to launch a film competition to provide young female filmmakers with the thing they most want: the chance to work.
The #NewView film competition highlights how young women see the world. To enter, directors must create an original short film (3-5 minutes) that showcases their point of view—on an issue, on their own life, or on our culture.
Glamour editor-in-chief Cindi Leive and Girlgaze CEO and founder Amanda de Cadenet will work with esteemed female filmmakers, actresses, and entertainment executives to select five winners. Each winner will receive $3,000 in prize money and may be featured in a future issue of Glamour. The winners will also receive production budgets to create a film for Glamour or one of our brand partners including Birchbox, LuMee, THE OUTNET.COM, and South Coast Plaza.
