SeriesFest and Shondaland are proud to have partnered for the past two years on the Women Directing Mentorship — a competition designed to discover aspiring female directors with a unique voice and provide a launchpad for their career. The Women Directing Mentorship is anchored with the prestigious opportunity to shadow a director for an episode of a Shondaland original series and a $5,000 stipend to use during the duration of their mentorship. The recipient of the inaugural mentorship, Rachel Myers, shadowed director Tessa Blake on Episode 306, “Ice Ice Baby” of the Shondaland series, Station 19 (ABC).
