The first Cinesisters meeting took place in August 2014 with only four of us: Rebecca Johnson, Nicola Mills, Claire Oakley and Jo Coates. We now have more than 150 members and hold meetings once a month in London to offer each other hands-on advice and share relevant experience. We support each other’s theatrical releases, share an internal database of resources, host masterclasses, put on special events and run a writers group. The collective is run by a team of amazing volunteers.
