The non-profit production company WE DO IT TOGETHER (WDIT) has announced its first feature film entitled: ‘Together Now’ – an anthology of short films created by internationally renowned women artists. Each segment will pair a female director with a prominent actress in a lead role to tell an inspiring story.
WDIT is committed to financing and producing female driven films, documentaries, TV and other forms of media. The company wants to empower women in front and behind the camera and has a goal of closing the gender gap in a male dominated industry.
Golden Globe® Winner Robin Wright (House of Cards, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Catherine Hardwicke (Miss You Already, Twilight, Thirteen), Katia Lund (City of God, All The Invisible Children), Patricia Riggen (Miracles From Heaven, The 33), Haifaa Al Mansour (Wadjda), Malgorzata Szumowska (Elles, In the Name Of) and Melina Matsoukas (Rihanna’s We Found Love, Beyoncé’s Formation) are confirmed to each direct a short in Together Now. Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) and Academy Award® Winner Juliette Binoche (The English Patient, Chocolat) will each star in one of the seven shorts. Carol Polakoff, Shelby Stone and Chiara Tilesi will produce the film.
Production of ‘Together Now’ is scheduled to begin in July 2016 with principal photography being shot in a variety of international locations. All profits generated through the film’s release will be reinvested back to the non-profit production company.
