For years Studio Movie Grill has opened their theater doors wide for Women in Film. They have been critically important in helping us carry out our mission to promote female filmmakers. SMG has been a true partner by providing us with a venue to screen movies by women and by helping us to publicize the films we are screening. Lynne McQuaker also recommends excellent films that we have in turn sponsored or promoted to our contacts. Whenever the public sees great movies by (or even about women), we help advance women in the industry and subsequently everywhere. The percentage of female filmmakers falls far below where it should be and the depictions of women in media are too often disturbing. SMG truly cares about our cause and demonstrates their commitment time and time again. We are grateful every time, SMG says, “Yes” to another WIF.D screening. Our board, our members, and our guests always feel welcome at any location. We enjoy a good movie with tasty food and beverage – all for a good cause. What could be more fun?! And at every location, the staff is always courteous and accommodating. We treasure our partnership with Studio Movie Grill and look forward to many more years of collaboration. Together we have opened a lot of people’s eyes about what it means to be a woman in film or just a woman in general.
