GIMME FIVE: Women in film wishes for Cinefilles’ fifth birthday!


It may be hard to believe, but Cinefilles is turning the big 0-5! That’s five years of reviews, articles, interviews, features and amazing opportunities to connect with our fellow female pop culture junkies in an effort to showcase girl-powered film commentary.

So far this year we’ve made a few big changes, including our expansion to include TV coverage. We’ve also revised the site’s mandate to focus specifically on the role of women in entertainment, bringing you even more great coverage of the girls and women (both fictional and IRL) whose strong voices and creative visions are shaping what we see and want to see on screen.

To celebrate five years of doing what we love and sharing it with all of you, we’re blowing out the candles and making a few birthday wishes for women in entertainment.

1. Equal pay for women and their male co-stars



2. For the Academy Award for Best Director to go to a woman


3. To never experience another Mindy Project near-miss, and to see more female protagonists (like our beloved Agent Carter!) owning the small screen


4. More roles for women of colour in the mainstream


5. To see more girl-powered blockbusters killin’ it at the box office like Pitch Perfect 2 and Mad Max: Fury Road and more men like Tom Hardy and Simon Pegg who are willing to stand up for the cause  


For more on our five-year anniversary, expanded coverage and new mandate, check out our press release and media kit. And be sure to share your wish list for women in film in 2015/16 below!
