Call for Contributors to Interview Female Filmmakers for Routledge Compilation
 Editor Michele Meek is seeking contributors for the book Independent Female Filmmakers: A Chronicle through Interviews, Profiles, and Manifestos to be published by Routledge. Contributors would be assigned a filmmaker to interview and write an original biography for the collection. The book will be a "then and now" approach, featuring interviews, manifestos and profiles originally published in The Independent Film & Video Monthly between 1976-2006 as well as including a new original interview with and a biography of each filmmaker for the collection. This collection will offer a unique perspective into the diverse range of women’s voices that have been integral to independent film history, featuring interviews, manifestos, and essays by and with renowned narrative and documentary filmmakers like Martha Coolidge (Valley Girl, Real Genius), Julie Dash (Illusions, Daughters in the Dust), Maria Maggenti (The Incredibly True Adventures of Two Girls in Love) and Barbara Kopple (Harlan County USA, Wildman Blues) and experimental and avant-garde filmmakers like Yvonne Rainer and Trinh T. Minh-ha.  If interested, contact Michele Meek at mm@michelemeek.com for more information.
