In Their Own League’s mission is To bring awareness of current, past and potential future female/non-binary talent working in the film industry. ‘In Their Own League’ hopes to be informative, educational as well as entertaining.
Message from Bianca Garner, Editor and Founder of “In Their Own League”
“When I originally created ITOL I wanted to amplify the voices and stories of underrepresented individuals in film, and I feel now that I want to use the power and the reach of the site to bring the attention to on-going fights/struggles of the feminist movement. Film is perhaps the most powerful art form of our time and I believe that we can explore and focus on many important topics/issues that are at the fore centre of our society through our discussions/analysis of certain films.”
