In 1974 the NFB established Studio D, the first publicly funded feminist film-production unit in the world. Studio D would eventually become home to six staff directors and a number of producers and support staff. About half the studio’s films were to be directed by independent women filmmakers from across the country. The next two decades were marked by enormous success for Studio D, including three Academy Award® wins. We pay tribute to this visionary studio with this selection of films produced by women, for women.
