WALMART + THE OSCARS
Last year, only 7% of the top 250 films were directed by women. To help support gender equality and inspire the next generation of female filmmakers, we created an integrated program that brought together the world's largest retailer and Hollywood's biggest night.
Melissa McCarthy, Dee Rees ("Mudbound") and Nancy Meyers ("The Intern") will kick things off at the Oscars with the premiere of three short films they each directed. Four emerging female film students will also receive funding to create, produce and distribute their screenplays.
