Ok, we might be a teensy bit biased, but in our humble opinion, women directors have been slaying the game all throughout the first three months of this year!
 
This quarterly round-up, along with our weekly interviews and daily social media updates, is our way of shining a bright spotlight on the talented women directors with profiles in our database.
 
This is only a small sampling of the vast quantity of amazing work being created by women directors on Free The Bid. 
 
In addition to crafting the incredible commercial work, branded content, short films, and music videos below, directors in our database have been conquering the worlds of TV, feature film, documentary, and more. Watch this space – our next newsletter will include examples of women directors’ work within these fields, as well!  
 
If you’re a woman director or a production company representative, make sure to let us know about your upcoming work so we can feature it in our next newsletter!
 
If you are an agency creative, and will be working on a project with a woman director, let us know so that we can interview you for the website.
 
If you are at an agency or a brand who has not yet taken the pledge (gasp!), let us know immediately!
