Sian Heder quotes

  • Look out for each other. I think the more we support each other as a community, the more successful we will be. I'm a part of Film Fatales, a collective of women directors who meet to share advice and provide support for each other's projects. I think the more we can build an old girls' network to rival the old boys' network, the better off we will be.

Because today, if you're appointed by the king, they don't feel that they're responsible for the people.
