March is Women's History Month, and March 8th is International Women's Day. We thought we'd mark the occasion by celebrating women in film! Actresses get all the fame and fortune, but it's important as film lovers to recognize the contributions made by those behind the camera, whether it be as filmmakers, screenwriters, cinematographers, animators, editors, producers, composers, even film critics. They all contribute to this crazy and wonderful industry, and many of them are true groundbreakers and pioneers in this field. Here's a list of women (in no particular order) who deserve recognition...sorry if we forgot anyone!
Frances Marion, screenwriter/director (The Love Light)
