Yesterday, Bloomberg published a great article 'Why Women in Hollywood Can't Get Film Financing?' by Lauren Sandler. Sandler discusses the dismal statistics, the research out of Sundance and talks to women directors about the general catering of the industry towards men. Jill Soloway, who won the director's prize at Sundance this year, feels that the system won't change until so-called women's films are supported by ticket sales. Soloway rather hilariously yet sadly describes the current state of the movie industry.

Currently, if the [moviegoing] experience doesn’t make a man feel necessary, then there’s the feeling it’s going to be a boner kill at the box office.

Alongside the article, they also published a great infographic with the statistics which we've posted below. Props to Bloomberg and Lauren Sandler for this piece. Make sure to check it out.

    Valerie Weiss would not have been able to make the darling film LOSING CONTROL now on Netflix getting 5 stars if it weren't for the HARVARD NETWORK.
    After reading the script and knowing her talents: science, writing, communicating and having Alyssa Weisberg (JAWS) as her casting director and handsome Reid Scott in the lead as Ben and Miranda Kent as Sam, two talented gorgeous actors created a great, funny, intelligent film for those who were smart enough and lucky enough to go and see it. WAKE UP HOLLYWOOD.
