TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES (TCM) AND WOMEN IN FILM LOS ANGELES ANNOUNCE MULTI-YEAR PARTNERSHIP

Turner Classic Movies (TCM) and Women In Film (WIF) Los Angeles have joined forces for a multi-year partnership dedicated to raising awareness about the lack of gender equality in the industry and celebrating the achievements of women in film. Beginning in fall of 2015, TCM will kick off a three-year commitment each October with an extensive on-air programming initiative created to raise awareness about the historical contributions of women working behind the camera, shining a spotlight on the current lack of women in positions of power in the film business, and promoting resources that empower them to more fully participate in the industry. Women in Film Los Angeles will partner with TCM throughout this programming initiative to offer research and resources that illuminate the current roles women play in the film industry and promote tools to assist women filmmakers in furthering their careers and the art form.
