Draw Your Line is a workshop and round table discussion for womxn and non-binary filmmakers to practice setting, keeping and trusting your boundaries within your workplace — whether on-set or in the production office.
We deserve safety and we have every right to claim a space safe. In the entertainment industry, self-care and well-being are not always valued, but we believe in changing that. We believe that every one of us has the strength we need to protect ourselves, but sometimes the tools are missing to do so. We’re here at WCCW to bring you a safe space, tools and resources to practice setting your boundaries and trusting your intuition because you deserve to draw your line and let others know where the f*ck you stand.
Color Film, an LA-based collective, connects womxn and marginalized filmmakers to tools and resources to self-advocate in the film industry. We explore and share through personal and professional development workshops, our Connect meet-ups for our growing community of film industry folks, movie nights with local filmmakers, and our blog, ReelSource Hub.
D’arby Rose, filmmaker and artist, and Lindsey Esplin, artist and professional problem solver, met in 2015 working in film production, freelanced from there out, and together they continue to explore the film industry landscape and succeeding as womxn in it. In early 2018 they co-founded and started Color Film to help womxn, non-binary, trans and all marginalized folks to get through and access the film industry as safely and effectively as possible, so we can tell our stories from behind and in front of the camera like we deserve to.
