This morning I will be covering a panel discussion called "Amazing Women in Film." Scheduled panelists include actor/director Mary Stuart Masterson, whose movie "The Cake Eaters" is playing at the festival; producer Katie Roumel; Donna Dickmanis, a vice president at Focus Features; and Karen Durbin, film critic for Elle magazine.
The moderator is US Weekly film reviewer and part-time Hyde Park resident Thelma Adams.
They will discuss whether or not having more women sitting in the director's chair and holding top industry positions has shifted the balance to the point of equality.
Hmm ... I think I know the answer to that one.
