We’re looking for a rockstar film editor!
Let’s celebrate incredible women around the world.
In January 2017, we launched Future of Women to amplify women’s voices in the media through film and photography. In five months, Future of Women has grown from an idea to a global film series and a community of 42 female photographers and videographers. Our work is filled with creativity and a commitment to our mission to celebrate women around the world. We are looking for a rockstar film editor to help the magic continue.
Future of Women spent May in Indonesia and Vietnam filming a video series about inspiring and creative women. The footage is beautiful ~ so many colors ~ and the women’s stories are magical ❤ Next, we’re filming in Paris, Barcelona, and Beirut. The director is a talented Los Angeles-based director who also shoots for Netflix, National Geographic, and Discovery Channel.
The ideal editor is a film editing wizard — and a talented colorist. Their style is fresh, clean, and colorful. Ideally based in US or Europe. He/she has an eye for good design, has stellar communication skills, is experienced working globally, and is passionate about telling the stories of women. They will work closely with our founder to edit the footage.
You should be self-motivated, excited about our mission, patient, flexible, and an excellent listener with attention to detail.
The founder is based in Los Angeles. The position is paid.

About Future of Women
Women are blazing trails, shaping societies, and inspiring communities, but we often don’t hear enough about these women.* On January 11, we created Future of Women, an Instagram account that profiles and celebrates inspiring and creative women around the world. We wanted to amplify women’s voices in the media. Born out of a belief that women dream bigger when they are surrounded by exceptionally adventurous and accomplished women, we feature incredible ladies everywhere — women exploring new frontiers in sex, media, science, food, tech, sports, music, theater, and art. We want to inspire women (especially young women) to dream big!
Since launching three months ago, we have focused on three areas:
- Featuring Women on Instagram: In the first three months, we profiled 75 women from 31 countries**, including World Cup Ski Cross Champions, Musical Comedians, Al Jazeera Filmmakers, and Environmentalists in the Arctic. We receive nominations about women all around the world who are creating something BIG and beautiful and who give back to their communities.
- Building a Global Community of Female Photographers: We started building a global community of female photographers to help us profile the women through beautiful photos. We’re already 41 young female photographers globally — from New Delhi to Buenos Aires to Los Angeles to Cape Town.
- Creating a Global Video Series about Creative Women: Future of Women is in Asia and Europe filming a video series with creative women! We’re traveling to Indonesia, Vietnam, Lebanon, Spain, and France in May, June, and July with a video team to explore new places through the eyes and experiences of inspiring and creative women who are changing the world — exceptional female filmmakers, athletes, artists, chefs, tech entrepreneurs, and designers.
*While women represent half of the world’s population, women represent less than one third of all speaking characters in film. 95% of films are directed by men, 80–90% of leads are male, and 55% of the time the woman is naked or scantily clad. Yet, films that feature women make 23% more than films that don’t. Return on investment is higher when the Director, Producer, Screenwriter, and/or Lead Actor is a woman. Films by and about women make more money. Hollywood only targets 18% of their films as “women films” and this means that there is a giant underserved audience and untapped profit potential.
