DePaul Film Fatales
Most of you are probably familiar with the film student organizations at DePaul like The Digital Cinema Collaborative (DCC), but the DePaul Film Fatales is another student org that's all about women in the film industry. Film Fatales supports women with academic and creative needs within the digital cinema field. They have tons of workshops for camera operating, sound equipment, and more, which are focused on teaching women and taught by women. They’re a great way to meet and network with people that are already in the industry and learn from professionals. It's also a great way to get information about job or volunteer opportunities and current projects that others are working on. Along with workshops and informational meetings, there are also tons of film screenings. All of the films that are shown are usually by female directors, with plots that are focused on female characters. The most recent screening was of a film The Mourning Forest by Naomi Kawase, about a nurse who mourns the death of her child. DePaul has tons of clubs that promote diversity and inclusion, and this one example of it. The Film Fatales is a great club especially for anyone who wants to meet more female filmmakers or learn more about the field from a female perspective.
