Cathy Schulman, the Oscar-winning producer (Crash, The Illusionist, Tears of the Sun), will replace Jane Fleming as president of non-profit org Women In Film. Schulman's three-year term officially began January 1. Fleming declares:
"I can think of no one better to take the reins of Women In Film as the organization grows in scope and impact to meet the challenges of the 21st century.  She is a proven leader, producer and visionary as well as a committed teacher, philanthropist and mentor.  Moreover, her production experience in film and television, both scripted and documentary, gives her a unique insight into the diverse needs of the women the organization serves."
Schulman is eager to work with new board members (listed below) and says:

"We must continue to define our mandate so that the needs of women in entertainment are met. Equally, we need to ensure women act collectively to make positive change for both men and women working in this ever-changing landscape."
