Reese Witherspoon Announces Second Edition Of Hello Sunshine Filmmaker Lab
Glaring, audacious, and extremely talented, the women of Hollywood are leaving no stone unturned to increase female representation in the industry. The previous Golden Globes, for instance, nominated not a single female director; thus giving a clear idea that far more efforts are required to allow adequate opportunities and appreciation for skilful women. Last Summer, Reese Witherspoon partnered her media brand, Hello Sunshine with AT&T to organize a learning opportunity for young, aspiring, female filmmakers. In what Witherspoon fondly calls, The AT&T Hello Sunshine Filmmaker Lab, several teenage girls from across the country came together to film a documentary, and to learn from the very best in the industry. This Summer again, the Filmmaker Lab will bring together 20 women to L.A. There, they will learn from inspiring women in the entertainment industry while creating professional content.
