My own personal opinion is like, “Whatever it takes to get us in the door.” I think it’s OK, certainly for people that are aware that they have had blind spots [to acknowledge] that men, especially white men, have gotten the majority of jobs in film for so long, so it’s OK to make a concerted effort to open the door to new types of filmmakers. I don’t feel like it’s gimmicky. I kind of feel like if I looked at it that way, it would be lose-lose. Because either they won’t do it at all or if they do, they’re doing it for the wrong reasons. Whatever the reasons are, I’m part of the conversation now and I feel really lucky because of that.
