C21 supports Women Under The Influence

C21Media-backed development producer Studio21 has come on board as a sponsor for this year’s Women Under The Influence festival in Idyllwild, CA, aiming to build a bridge between creative voices and the international business at Content London.

Studio21 will provide a runway from WUTI to Content London in December, where directors of some of the most compelling short stories will have the opportunity to connect with leading players in development & longform series making.

Founder Tabitha Denholm said: “We could not be more excited to partner with Studio21. Creating opportunity for our community of filmmakers – through events, partnerships and collaborative content - has always been at the heart of our platform. With Studio21’s support, we will be able to take this to the next level.”

Studio21 CEO David Jenkinson said: “We hope this new partnership with WUTI will discover, develop and connect a raft of fresh, inspirational stories with the right partners."

“Studio21 and Content London are ideally positioned to connect new voices with the global content business, from platforms, to channels to coproduction opportunities. Our aim is to position WUTI creatives inside our Shorts2Series strand at Content London and work with them to facilitate the best partnerships.”

Founded in 2015, WUTI is a platform that celebrates female-driven cinema & storytelling through media and events. It’s unique vantage point and authentic voice allows it to lead with a female focus and contribute to the canon of filmmaking and film history in new and vital ways.
