Reported by Netflix -Cate Blanchett We have been astonished by the artistry of all 1,200 filmmakers who applied to Proof of Concept, which proves that there are so many voices out there who deserve to find their audience. Our final selection represents filmmakers who we felt had the experience and vision to take their careers to the next level and make creative and compelling film and television that may transform the landscape of storytelling. We are grateful to the applicants, our incredible selection committee, and the Netflix Fund for Creative Equity for their unwavering support and guidance as we take another step towards creating an ecosystem that supports inclusion of gender marginalized directors at the highest levels of the entertainment business,” said, Blanchett, Francini, and Smith. refer Link – Here

Reported by pajiba – Blanchett is attending the festival this year to promote her new film Rumours as well as her filmmaking initiative Proof of Concept, “an accelerator program she co-founded last year to elevate the perspectives of women, trans and nonbinary people” by backing their films. She believes in funding underrepresented voices because “Their point of view, in whatever story, in whatever genre they tell it, will be different from somebody who has grown up [as a] white middle-class male,” she says. “It’s a different perspective. They’ll put the camera in a different place in the room. And I think that’s really exciting.”

She also said she’s tired of the double standard when it comes to female filmmakers taking risks and doing something experimental or new. Refer Link –here
