Community Cinema Vashon Presents:

MAKERS/Women in Hollywood

Community Cinema Vashon, presented by the Independent Television Service (ITVS), Women & Girls Lead, thanks to the generous support of the Producing Partner, Voice of Vashon, and sponsors Island GreenTech, and the Vashon Theatre, is excited to offer a free screening of MAKERS/Women In Hollywood on October 28 at 6pm at the Vashon Theatre. Women in Hollywood is one of six episodes in the MAKERS series that profiles the impact women have had over the past 50 years in industries once largely closed to women — comedy, politics, space, war, business, and Hollywood. Through intimate interviews with trailblazing women known and unknown, viewers will be given a rare glimpse—sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and always candid—of what it was like to be pioneers in their fields.

MAKERS: Women in Hollywood (screens Tuesday, 10/28 at 6pm FREE at the Vashon Theatre. Discussion follows film.) Women In Hollywood showcases the women of showbiz, from the earliest pioneers to present-day power players, as they influence the creation of one of the country’s biggest commodities: entertainment.

“MAKERS is not just a media project, it is a movement,” said Dyllan McGee, Founder and Executive Producer of MAKERS. “Each documentary in this six-part series examines the impact of the women’s movement on six fields once largely closed to women. The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media reports that since 1946, gender inequality on screen has remained largely unchanged and unchecked and our goal at MAKERS is to help change that statistic.”
Produced by some of the country’s best filmmakers, MAKERS premiered Tuesday, September 30, 2014 on PBS with a new episode for six consecutive weeks. The films will be available for streaming on and after their PBS broadcast.
