Amy Ziering

“It is no exaggeration to say that over the past decade, the documentary film landscape has been single-handedly transformed for the better by Regina Scully and Artemis Rising. Regina’s unique vision, fearless leadership, boundless compassion, keen judgment and exceptional kindness have led to the funding and shepherding of well over a hundred documentary and feature projects, many of which would never have been realized without her catalyzing help. Artemis Rising is definitely helping to lead the cultural conversation around key social justice issues. It’s not implausible to link the seeds of the #metoo movement to Regina’s prescient support of The Invisible War and The Hunting Ground, two films which brought a multitude of assault survivors voices into this culture’s national conversation, long before the topic was trending. Her strategic seeding of not just one film on a certain topic, but a whole ecosystem of films, shrewdly helps to continue to keep issues like gender violence, harassment, abuse and misogyny in the public consciousness; allowing these films to leverage and amplify each other’s messages.”
