It all began in Park City when the Guerrilla Girls invaded the Sundance Film Festival and put up stickers that humorously stated the facts about the low, low, low numbers of women directors, writers and cinematographers in Hollywood. Now, Los Angeles and New York are getting the Guerrilla treatment to “remind the Oscar-watching public that the film industry has a long, long way to go” when it comes to recognizing women behind the lens.
Be on the lookout for these great fact-heavy stickers in bathrooms, theaters, bulletin boards and all over. Here’s something to consider, courtesy of the group:
Movie moguls are supposed to be great womanizers, so you might be surprised that [ THESE DISTRIBUTORS DON’T KNOW HOW TO PICK UP WOMEN. ] Last year, these companies released only one film or none directed by a female: Miramax, New Line, Artisan, Sony Screen Gems, Paramount Classics, Fine Line, Dimension, USA Films and the Shooting Gallery.
Check out previews of all of the stickers only at the Guerrilla Girls site.
