I had an intuition just now to google search ‘screen siren’, and here’s what it turned up:
and I was pleased to discover that president, founder, director and producer Trish Dolman forms part of the exception to the rule of under-represented women in the film industry.
One portion of her ‘about us’ bio states “In 2003, Trish was the youngest recipient ever of the Woman of the Year award from Women in Film and Video Vancouver. She was also honored as Eveuve Clicquot Ponsardin La Grande Dame 2003 Woman of Distinction, and in 2010 was named one of the 100 Most Influential Women in British Columbia by the Vancouver Sun.”
Also with Screen Siren Pictures are fellow producer Christine Haebler, and the rest of the production team is ~11-10 women to men. That’s a decent ratio, considering the statistics regarding Cannes film festival this year.
I love seeing women in lead roles in the world of film and television. I look forward to delving into the work of Screen Siren Pictures, and to unearthing more notable women in film. Stay tuned!
I’m feeling good about following my intuition.
