Women are coming together to finance films that change the media landscape for women.

At Cannes, founder Chiara Tilesi announced the first feature film of the non-profit organization We Do It Together, which was formed to “finance and produce films, documentaries and television that empower women.” Produced by Carol Polakoff, Shelby Stone and Chiara Tilesi, Together Now will be a compilation of seven short films, each directed by a directed female director.

Freida Pinto and Juliette Binoche are slated to star in one of the shorts. Robin Wright, Catherine Hardwick, Katia Lund, Patricia Riggen, Haifa Al Mansour, Malgorzata Szumowska and Melina Matsoukas are confirmed to direct.
