The Future Is Female : A Concert For Women In Film - presented by "FIF Concerts and Events" - a non profit organization founded by Tori Letzler, with the goal to encourage and inspire female composers.

"If you build it, they will come" ......
 I'm guessing you've heard this before. When it seems as though no one will give you a platform, what do you do? You make your own.

Think about this, the last time a female composer won an Oscar for best score was in 1997, that was 20 years ago. Over 87 years, women have only been nominated for best score a total of 5 times! I want to help change this.

The goal of this concert is to shed light on how many women are currently working in this industry, talented women who are often overlooked.

This concert features 10 up and coming female composers, all currently working in Film, TV, and Video Games. Each composer will be presenting an original work, performed by a 31 piece orchestra brought to us with the help of The Hollywood Chamber Orchestra, run by Mark Robertson and Noah Gladstone. 

Now more than ever, it is important that we support these women! In order for the industry to welcome us as equals, we have to be welcomed as such by our peers.

I'm asking for the help of this community to make this concert a reality. This is the first concert I have ever produced, but this cause is so important to me and the women involved that I had to give it my all.

We need your help, to show that there is room for all of us to come together and create beautiful music to help tell stories and inspire.
