If you visited a movie theater this summer (and according to the numbers, not many of you did), odds are you watched aliens fire laser guns, buff men fire machine guns, or monsters trample urban centers. We go to blockbusters as bystanders, not as participants. But what if your role in the movie-making process were more active than merely sitting down and eating popcorn?

You could help change the dismal statistics for women directors in film — women directed only 6% of the 250 top-grossing films in 2016.
