As you read earlier, Women and Hollywood will be one of the nominating organizations of the Fox Global Directors Initiative.

Each organization gets to nominated 10 women. After we put in the nominees, the folks at Fox will contact you for the submission process. Women and Hollywood will have no involvement after we submit our list names.

Because this is a unique program, we are taking the submission process very seriously. In order to be considered by Women and Hollywood you will need to have directed at least one feature, TV show, short or web series. This is not for people who have not yet directed.

Here's what you need to do to be considered:

- Submit a short one paragraph resume of your work and a link to one trailer.

- Also include information about why you think you should be a part of this program.

- We also need your email address and phone number.

Directors can be from anywhere but please know if you get into the program you have to get yourself to LA and have your own housing. All submissions should be sent to melissa@womenandhollywood.com

Submissions are due by 5pm EST on July 28. We will only contact you if you are one of our 10 directors whose name will be submitted. Once your name is submitted to Fox, you will have to go through their entire submission process.

    I am Israeli, and hold an MFA from NYU's graduate film program (1994). My award winning thesis film was sold to Britain's channel 4. I have directed a 50 minute drama in Israel + 4 documentaries, but I primarily make my living as a show-runner/ TV creator and screenwriter . I have just completed my first feature script (funded by the Jerusalem film fund) which I would love to direct, but am feeling a bit rusty and apprehensive. It is the story of two very strong female leads which I would love to bring to life myself. Please help me find my voice and regain my confidence as a director and visual story teller.
