OR DIE TRYING has been featured as IndieWire’s Project of the Week, in addition to being covered by Women and Hollywood, Starable, and movie bloger, to name a few.

THE MOVEMENT

OR DIE TRYING is a testament to the countless women in film who are constantly overlooked and unappreciated. We stand with the women fighting to increase visibility of women and minorities in film and television. WE believe that there is a spot at the table for anyone willing to work hard, be fearless, and demand what they're worth.

 

This series represents all of the resilient women who are judged not only by their talent, but also by their age, race, gender, "look," and social following. it represents the women who hustle for what they want, because they don't believe in a plan b. the women who collaborate and create, hoping to build something bigger than themselves. 

 

This one is for the artists, the fighters, and the dreamers.
