Welcome to Women Scripted. Fundraising Campaign! Thank you for being here and supporting our mission.
Women Scripted. is the development platform for content written by women. Women Scripted. is born from the importance to create a collaborative literary talent discovery platform for women storytellers and decision makers to develop content written by women.
While many initiatives are being put in place to cope with gender disparity in the Film and TV industry, women writers remain an underrepresented group representing 20% of scripts being produced internationally. The mission of Women Scripted. is to support the development of women screenwriters and facilitate collaborations between women storytellers and decision makers worldwide. By doing so, we aim to increase the number of films and TV series written by women being produced and financed, develop talent in unrepresented communities and countries and reshape the rules of storytelling to normalize stories from the women point of view.
Our current situation working remotely is showing us the power of connecting virtually. Yet women writers have been writing and producers have developing content without having access to a global digital community to connect more easily. Women Scripted. is here to address that need by disrupting the industry rigidity with one innovative and inclusive medium.
As our culture is starting to shift thanks to movements like #MeToo and Time’s Up, we believe Women Scripted. will rapidly gain interest as a timely and inclusive platform for women writers and Film & TV professionals.
With your financial support, we will be able to build the platform and release it in September for the occasion of the Toronto International Film Festival. You can support us by giving a monetary contribution of your choice, becoming a launch sponsor, an event sponsor, an annual sponsor or an angel investor.
