Ava DuVernay Takes Action To Make Film Industry More Balanced For Any Kinds Of People And Culture

Well-known filmmaker Ava DuVernay, who nominated for the Academy Award for her groundbreaking documentary ’13th,‘ goes on fighting against the double standards in the film industry; this time, DuVernay took a big step to make the industry more balanced and launched ARRAY Crew.

Through the ARRAY Crew, described as “a database for Hollywood’s below-the-line crew members,” DuVernay aimed at making the film industry – Hollywood a workplace for more kinds and cultures of people.

Once the news regarding that the Critics’ Choice Television Award-winning filmmaker launched the database was spread, DuVernay took to her verified Instagram account to share her excitement about it. By releasing a screenshot of a tweet of Viola Davis, in which she thanked her, the director showed her gratitude for those who amplified and celebrated ARRAY Crew. She wrote:

“We’ve heard from thousands of crew members, producers, filmmakers, artists, collaborators, friends, activists, moviegoers and folks who believe in balance and belonging.”

Intending to help productions to find qualified but underrepresented crew members, the filmmaker concluded her message as follows:

Feeling encouraged and excited about our efforts. As my Mom always tells me: “nothing beats a failure, but a try.” On behalf of the whole @arraynow family, thank you. #arraycrew”

As soon as the ‘When They See Us’ director released the post, a great number of notable names of the film industry flooded the comments section to show their support for her. Alongside Rashida Jones, Hannah Simone, Dascha Polanco; Dwayne Johson, Kerry Washington, and Viola Davis congratulated her through their official social media accounts.
