Catherine Hardwicke Honored at Female Eye Film Festival

catherinehardwickeCatherine Hardwicke was honored at the Female Eye Film festival for making her mark in the film industry and notably kicking off the Twilight chain.

““One thing that we’ve noticed over the years is that female directors often make a transition from other parts of the industry. (Catherine) has a background in production design and art direction, and she evolved her skillet to the next level. She’s had a huge hit (with Twilight) but she’s also made an impact in the political arena — she didn’t direct the sequel. She’s a woman who has made her bones in a difficult industry.””

Catherine is the first non-Canadian to be honored by the festival. Read the rest on MetroNews.


  1. Go girl! I have to admit, I had never heard of her before Twilight but given her small budget and the script she had to work with I think she did great. The dreamlike quality of the movie was wonderful. Congratulations.

  2. I agree. Everyone criticizes Twilight in retrospect. But with the teeny budget she had, and the time constraints, and the horribly written screenplay, she did the best possible movie that she could.

    Wouldn’t it be wonderful to see what Twilight COULD have been had not Melissa Rosenberg been so protective of her screenplay and worked with SM a lot more? And if Summit had actually put a little money into it?
