Joella Chrichton and Imogen Grace are two women who work in the Toronto film industry and have devised a way to elevate the way women are represented in film. They’ve created the Bechdel Bill, which is a pledge that film makers can make that states that 80% of the films they make will pass the Bechdel Bill. “What is the Bechdel Bill?” You ask. Well it’s a test that films either pass or fail stating that there must be two women in a film, with names, that talk to each other, about something other than a man. Not surprisingly, most films don’t pass this test. These ladies have set out to change that and I was happy to shoot them in action! Here are my favourite shots from our Bechdel Bill shoot!
