OMG, TCM & 13th District’s O’Farrell declare Dec. 1 TCM WOMEN MAKE FILM DAY

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent

When is news about Hollywood not hyped enough? Even in bold italic caps,  COUNCILMEMBER O’FARRELL INTRODUCES RESOLUTION PROCLAIMING DECEMBER 1 AS “TCM WOMEN MAKE FILM DAY” IN THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES, it still doesn’t sink in right away.

“Since its very beginnings, cinema has been blessed with the outstanding creativity, skills, labor and vision of countless women, ” said Councilmember O’Farrell, who represents the 13th Council District, which includes Hollywood. “Far too often, though, their integral contributions to the art and industry of movies have been obscured. The work of TCM to correct this history is essential and a reminder that we must all do our part to elevate and bring attention to women voices, which is why I am honored to proclaim December 1 as “TCM Women Make Film” day.”

The proclamation is part of a larger virtual event that includes a conversation hosted by TCM’s Alicia Malone with documentary director Mark Cousins and featured directors Wanuri Kahiu and Kirsten Johnson.  During this virtual event, O’Farrell presents an official City of Los Angeles resolution to Pola Changnon, TCM’s general manager, proclaiming December 1 as “TCM Women Make Film Day” in the City of Los Angeles.

“We thank the City of Los Angeles for this honor and hope that everyone takes the opportunity to celebrate the meaningful impact of women in the entertainment industry,” Changnon said. “Women Make Film is a signature programming event for TCM and we will continue to celebrate dynamic women and their contributions to film for many years to come.”

To recap this holiday good news story, watch this

 

“TCM Women Make Film Day” & other events can also be seen on Channel 35 at 8:00 AM PT in Los Angeles on Spectrum Cable.

Here’s the elevator pitch ;)

TCM is a leading authority in classic film and its ‘Women in Film’ series seeks to shine a spotlight on the outstanding work of women filmmakers and their stories, many of which have typically gone untold. This fall, many  hours of TCM programming have been devoted to an array of films directed by women — 100 films by 100 filmmakers from 6 continents and 44 countries, spanning 12 decades, plus the premiere of a 14-part, groundbreaking documentary, “Women Make Film: A New Road Movie Through Cinema,” written and directed by Mark Cousins.

Currently in its 26th year as a leading authority in classic film, TCM offers critically acclaimed series like The Essentials, along with annual programming events like 31 Days of Oscar® in February and Summer Under the Stars in August.
