To inspire, empower, educate & employ
women of all ages & backgrounds in the film & tv industries
As female artists and creatives we stand on the shoulders of the women who have created before us. None is a more powerful and inspiring example than Baroque painter Artemisia Gentleschi. We want to empower, inspire and educate women, young and old & from all backgrounds to get involved in filmmaking.
We believe the dearth of female directors, producers cinematographers, composers, first assistant directors, art directors, sound designers and many other heads of departments is because of lack of knowledge and encouragement and that young women coming up in the industry are not seeing enough examples of successful female filmmakers.
Here there'll be resources to network and market your skills as well as find ways to train and learn more about the industry.
We are just starting out so in person workshops, competitions and inspiring talks by successful women in the industry will have to wait for a bit.
We do however have a short film in the works & are recording the first episodes of our new podcast to be called
"fierce female filmmakers"
In the meantime we are raising awareness and funds to create opportunities for women in the future. we are asking for any and all who want to get involved to subscribe to our mailing list.

Daughters & Patrons
Artemisia Gentileschi (1593 - 1654) is one of the most celebrated Baroque artists of the 17th century. Born in Rome in 1593, her father was an artist and taught her to paint. Her tutelage was taken over by another man who raped her. At the tender age of seventeen, she found the courage to accuse him of his crime. During his 9 month-long trial she was subjected to a public physical examination and her fingers were held in thumbscrews while she was repeatedly asked whether she was telling the truth.
all she could repeat was:
"It's true! It's true! It's True!"
Three hundred and fifty years later Artemisia's paintings are still mistaken for her male counterparts' work.
Since the dawn of cinema Female filmmakers have struggled to get their work recognised - Artemesia's Daughters want to change that for the generations of women to come.
