PANEL DISCUSSION – Voices on Set: Women Making Films (@ Orleans)

Whether it is breaking into the “business” or shattering stereotypes, women’s voices are far too often seemingly the only female voice in the room. They are not. Boston SciFi has brought together some outstanding filmmakers to talk about their experiences and what the future may bring. Taking on this challenge are our incredible panelists: Lisa Downs – Producer/Director (Life After Flash), Eirini Konstantinidou – Director/Producer (Mnemophrenia).
