Women Filmmakers only make up to 15% of the film industry. Yet when I was in Film School I was surrounded by talented women who aspired to direct. And we were no exception, 50% of film students are women.Apparently, once they graduate they vanish.
My best friend and I decided to create a Film Festival to prove it wrong, the first Festival in Spain where upcoming female directors could showcase their work. We had no experience and knew no one in the industry, but we had to make it work.
