We have a great admiration for women who work in the film industry! We work in the film industry… But we’re just babies in the industry, compared to those women we admire, those awesome chicks we aspire to be like, those we want to emulate, as we continue down this artists road… We know for women this path is, many times, not an easy one, but one that’s well worth the effort!

We started this blog to showcase our favorite women in film, and women who make films, and films about women, or some such combination of the aforementioned… chicks!!! (As well as, put our $0.02 worth out into the world, on any and everything we could dream of talking about when it came to the topic of “chicks & their flicks”)

These are the FlickChicks! The ladies we dig from all areas of the film industry; directors, producers, actresses, costumers, editors, grips, gaffers, assistants, show-runners, composers… You name it, we want to show our appreciation. (Especially for the dames who dared enter the Hollywood behind-the-camera boys clubs, and give ’em a run for their money! Since they are paving our way and all!)

So join us here and across the blogosphere, for this multimedia adventure into our take on… not just the woman who make the film industry great, but we will digress, when the mood strikes, into: music & fashion, art & pop culture, CMF will probably cover some “industry goss” & “celebrity hijinx” on occasion, and we can talk about how it all works together to effect how women operate within the “Hollywood system.” Hmmmm… Oh, the topics for discussion… : )

We aren’t She-ra man haters, blaming them for all the worlds ills; actually we are quite fond of those baring the Y chromosome. And perhaps, maybe, once in a while, we can see fit to make mention, or show a pic or two of a well deserving gentleman… as long as it’s in context. ; )

See… pretty and relevant! Incredibly talented FlickChick, Michelle Williams & co-star, Ryan Gosling, in a still from their highly acclaimed 2010 indie film, Blue Valentine, for which she was nominated for an Academy Award. Don’t know why he wasn’t… but that, dear reader, is a topic for an actual blog post.
