Excellent post. Also, with regards to women in film making (with a New Jersey twist), there is currently a documentary being produced through Kickstarter about Alice Guy Blache, one of the first people to use narrative in films. The documentary project is entitled "Act Natural", (full disclosure, I backed it on ks), and it turns out Guy Blache owned her own film studio in NJ! She's nowhere in film history books!
