WOMEN:PRODUCE
WELL DEVELOPED FILMS

Drawing parallels between the trailblazing women of early cinema’s silent era and today's leading producers, this PGA East designed program will showcase the shared challenges and extraordinary contributions of women producers from both time periods, focusing on the process used to develop a film. Clips from contemporary movies produced by our panelists Amy Robinson and Jane Startz, as well as from June Mathis' 1921 Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, will serve as case studies. Panelists will not only reveal how material is found and developed into a film, but will also provide insight into the multi-faceted role of the producer.

PGA member panelists include:

Producer and author Jane Startz started her own New York-based production company Jane Startz Productions in 1997 and was the co-founder of the international media company Scholastic Productions Inc. Her credits include the feature films Tuck Everlasting, Ella Enchanted, The Mighty (Golden Globe Nominee), The Indian in the Cupboard and the Emmy award winning television series The Magic School Bus.

Amy Robinson started in the business as an actress. Her first film role was Teresa in Martin Scorsese’s Mean Streets, which premiered at the New York Film Festival in 1973. Robinson has produced more than 15 feature films, amongst them After Hours, Running on Empty (Academy Award Nominee), For Love of the Game and Julie & Julia (Academy Award Nominee).

Jane Gaines, Professor of Film, Columbia University, author of two award-winning books and an Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences scholars grant for research on the Women Film Pioneers project and the forthcoming Fictioning Histories.

Moderated by Julie Buck, Film Archivist & Producer.
