Cady is the Director and Executive Producer of the documentary series “Seeing is Believing: Women Direct.”
Seeing is Believing: Women Direct is a documentary series, directed, executive produced, written and edited by Cady McClain, about women directors who are on the front lines of the field: from major award winners and those in the vanguard of television and feature films, to graduated students and frustrated auteurs.
McClain has spent the past year traveling the globe, speaking to female directors of film and television and documenting their stories. The outcome is a serialized documentary, providing insider access to the skills and tools needed to succeed as a woman in the directing field.
Cady McClain is a two-time Emmy winning actress, writer, director, and producer. She studied directing with legendary artistic director of The Ensemble Studio Theatre, Curt Dempster. Her short film, The World of Albert Fuh, premiered at the SOHO International Film Fest. It then won Best Comedy/Drama Short at the Ohio Indie Gathering, was awarded an Honorable Mention for “Best Director” by the Los Angeles Film Review, an “Honorable Mention” by the SaMoIndie FF, and received an Award of Merit by the Best Shorts Film Festival. It was also an official selection of the LA Indie Film Fest. Her short film, Flip Fantasia, enjoyed acceptance into the Macon Film Festival and gained a remarkable FB cult following of over 80K. Seeing is Believing: Women Direct, a serialized doc on women and leadership, explores the journey of women artists working in the field of directing. She is thrilled to be directing and producing Butterflies, a short film by Carlotta Summers, in May of 2017.
Seeing is Believing: Women Direct will make its World Premiere and is an Official Selection of the 2017 Newport Beach Film Festival. The first episode in the series will screen as part of the program ‘Short Femme Factor’ on April 25 at 1:30 p.m. at Island Cinema 6 in Newport Beach.
