It isn't every day a filmmaker receives a STAFF PICK from Vimeo. When it happens it's, well, awesome. I created The First Woman Filmmaker Nobody's Heard Of for the video streaming service, Fandor. The film is about Alice Guy Blache, a French filmmaker who made over 1,000 films between 1897 and 1922.
I've always been a fan of Film History so it was a shock when I discovered her and it seems a lot of other people never heard of her either. Because, besides receiving a STAFF PICK, the video garnered over 35K views on Vimeo and was featured on a variety of online publications including NO FILM SCHOOL, SLATE and NEW YORK MAGAZINE. It was even mentioned in an article about Fandor written for the NEW YORK TIMES.
Please share my excitement and enjoy the film.
