Women fare better in independent film: Study
PARK CITY, Utah (AP) - Despite equal representation of male and female film-makers at this year's Sundance Film Festival, a new study shows there has been little change in the number of women working as directors and producers at the independent-film showcase over the past decade.
But women still fare better behind the camera in independent film than in studio productions.
The Sundance Institute and Women in Film commissioned the study last year and announced the results on Monday in Park City, Utah.
Researchers at the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism examined gender disparity in American narrative and documentary films shown at Sundance from 2002 to 2012.
