Vimeo is Going to Start Funding Female Filmmakers

"... now that Jennifer Lawrence is writing letters about not getting paid as much as her male costars and The New York Times Magazine is writing huge features on how tough it is for women to get anywhere as filmmakers, it’s getting harder to ignore.

Let's not forget Gillian Anderson, who was initially offered half the salary of her co-star not only for the original X-Files series, but for the redux as well!

"Under the initiative, announced today at the Sundance Film Festival, Vimeo will bankroll at least five projects from women filmmakers this year. It will identify burgeoning directors through its current acquisitions pipeline, the team behind its original series, and the in-house group that handles the platform’s Staff Picks. Staffers also will meet with female filmmakers during Sundance in a bid to find candidates."
