Orly Yadin of Vermont. Executive Director of the Vermont International Film Festival
What’s the best part
What’s one way you would suggest people “Change the Lens”? In my job as curator of film festivals and ongoing screenings, we try to change the lens by making sure that women filmmakers are fairly represented. The more we show good films by women, the more this will become normative. In the end, the audience will no longer think of those films as “made by women” but just relate to them as excellent films. What advice would you give to a new female filmmaker? Learn your trade. What goals do you have for this year? To increase activities, screenings and partnerships with other film organizations in New England What women in the region (New England) inspire you? Most women inspire me.
Upcoming Events or Announcements? What are you working on? Our forthcoming 3-day film fest on the history of the movie musical. How could Ginger Rogers dance so seamlessly and lightly with those high heels and feather dress?
