Inside the Playlist: “SEE CHANGE”

From 2007 to 2019, just 4.8% of major films released in the United States were directed by women. In independent films, that number was 33%. SEE CHANGE is Film Streams' initiative to do better and reach gender parity among directors of the films we program by the end of 2021.

To celebrate the July 17 launch of SEE CHANGE, Film Streams staff collaborated on a Spotify playlist of our favorite music from film history written and/or performed by women.

Read on for who picked what, and which songs are from which films.
