Variety magazine covered the 'Women Who Score' Concert Documentary, which aimed to highlight the lack of female composers in film and television.
The concert took place in Downtown LA last summer and what made it unique was that all the composers were women. Cutler made the following statement during the concert:“The whole industry is struggling right now with the lack of diversity. Nowhere is it more evident than among composers for film. The smallest of percentages of women are involved in scoring films. That’s not because they’re not interested; it’s because they can’t get through the initial gatekeepers.”
The mini-documentary can be watched here.
