Were dedicating month of March off back of International Womens Day on Sunday 8 March to highlighting careers and achievements of women working in front of and behind camera. WomensMarch Elizabeth Karlsen is British film producer who co-found Numb e r 9 Films in 2002 with her production partner and husband, Stephen Woolley. Speaking on phone from her London office, she tells Film4 Onlines Nicole Davis about accolade-heavy CV and why she is at her happiest when making other people ' cinematic visions come true. It starts with studying biology. It might be stretch to point out that interest in microorganisms and molecules would be good foundation for career in production, but at its simplest, role of producer is to coalesce lots of different cells to create living, breathing film. Her cinematic appetite, however, whet much earlier. Being brought up in States where so much of fabric of culture is cinema, we go all time as family, Karlsen say. Although it is her English film buff mother whom Karlsen cites as real inspiration, was always watching films. It was while doing postgraduate degree, after having studied English, with brilliant woman called Jacqueline Rise that Karlsen found herself immersed in feminism, representations in cinema and lot of critical theory around film. It gave her enough of sense of what she wanted to pursue that, upon returning to New York, she got job as intern on film set. I get on really well with director and when he was editing movies he got in touch with me and asked if I wanted to help, she say. He was fantastic and sort of propelled onto that path. Film Was Parting Glances, Starring Steve Buscemi, And Director Was Bill Sherwood, Who Clearly Had Good Eye For Discovering Talent. Another person credited as Assistant Editor on alongside Karlsen is Christine Vachon, who went on to found Killer Films and produce, among many others, Carol and Colette with Number 9 Films. Considering she spends much of her time in editing room, I ask Karlsen why role of producer, in particular, stands out to her. I just walked onto that set and I didnt really know what producing was, but I just got this sense that you could bring all these creative people together and make film and I think that what I wanted to doI. Remember very strongly that someone had to orchestrate it and make happen and that really appeal to me. Radicalism Of Parting Glances Is Now Considered Something Of Milestone In Queer Cinema Would Set Tone For Karlsen's Own Career, Telling Stories From Sidelines. Although she credits her political family and coterie of liberals around whom she was brought up as fuel to that fire.
