The MacArthur Foundation applications for Documentary Film Grants are now open so join us for this rare opportunity to meet with Program Officer Lauren Pabst to get the inside scoop about how to submit your best proposal. Lauren manages the Foundation’s highly competitive independent documentary production fund. MacArthur funds the production of documentary films and participatory web-based documentaries that combine exceptional storytelling with in-depth journalism. They look for projects that challenge preconceptions and examine underreported social issues.

Grant amounts range from $50,000 - $200,000 and in the past year projects from the Women Make Movies Production Assistance Program that were funded include ASK THE SEXPERT and STRONG ISLAND. Come and learn whether or not your current or future project is a good fit and what you need to know if you do apply. Sign up or see more upcoming workshops.


New Release!
SLAYING THE DRAGON: RELOADED

A two DVD set which includes the original and a new 30- minute sequel to the 1986 award-winning film, SLAYING THE DRAGON: ASIAN WOMEN IN US TELEVISION AND FILM. The two films are a comprehensive look at media stereotypes of Asian and Asian American women since the silent era of film. SLAYING THE DRAGON: RELOADED updates the clips and references of the original and addresses how Hollywood's visual representations of Asian women have changed with globalization and the transformation of America's population over the past two decades. The only collection of its kind, the two films are essential viewing for studies of gender, race and representation.

SPECIAL OFFER! Get 50% off any Asian & Asian American Studies Collection title when you purchase SLAYING THE DRAGON: RELOADED at full price! See offer details.

Special Offer: GOLDEN GATE GIRLS


In GOLDEN GATE GIRLS author and professor S. Louisa Wei tells the story of filmmaker Esther Eng, the first woman to direct Chinese-language film in the US, and the most prominent woman director in Hong Kong in the 1930's. A San Francisco native and open lesbian, her contribution to film history is sadly overlooked - her 11 feature films mostly lost.
