Tips for Social Media in 2018

Out with the old, and in with the new!

Our final blog post of 2017 offers suggestions on what you should be thinking about when you use social media in 2018.

“Woman Helmed” — Announcing TFC’s First Distribution Grant

We stand with the women who have bravely stepped forward to tell their stories of sexual harassment and assault.

We believe more women should be at the helm of not just their own stories, but any damn story they wish to tell!

Provided they “know who their audience is, and try to appeal to as many niches as possible, and budget 20% for P&A”—but wait, we digress…

TFC was formed in part to combat imbalances of power in our industry, and in recent years our slate has contained at least close to, if not more than, 50% women directors.

TFC will of course strive to continue this tradition, and it shouldn’t be an effort, and truly wasn’t, and never will be for us. But we would like to do more.

For the first time, TFC will offer a distribution grant to a woman director in 2018.

To that end, we will match dollar for dollar donations to the organization made via this link through the end of the year.

More details to follow, but we are excited about this, and thank you in advance for helping us in any way you can.
