    Disney Just Launched A Campaign To Support Young Female Filmmakers And I Am Here For All Of This

    "The #DreamBigPrincess series is for the next generation of aspiring filmmakers to create content about the women who have inspired them.”

    If you're a fan of Disney — that is, someone with a heart — then I'm sure you'll agree that their movies are magical.

    With the launch of the #DreamBigPrincess video series, Disney will support the young women, who come from 13 different countries, as they make digital shorts that tell the stories of inspiring female role models.

    Each aspiring filmmaker will be paired with an inspirational interview subject spanning a diverse range of professions.

    The young women will capture the stories of these incredible individuals, along with their advice for achieving success.

    Jennifer Lee — who is the CCO for Walt Disney Animation Studios and also the Academy Award-winning writer/director of Frozen — will be a part of the series and said, “Using the journeys of characters like Anna, Elsa, and Moana to inspire kids to dream big is at the very heart of what all of us at Disney do."

    She continued, "The #DreamBigPrincess series is the perfect extension of that vision, providing a powerful platform for the next generation of aspiring filmmakers to create content about the women who have inspired them.”

    The shorts will go live on social media platforms starting Oct. 10, and you can get involved, too! For each like or share of a video or photo with #DreamBigPrincess on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, Disney Worldwide Services will donate $1 (up to $1 million) to Girl Up.
