It now emerges that more women were working at every level in the first 20 years of the film industry in the USA than at any point since. We are searching for academics, authors and lovers of the Silent Screen era to dip their quill, and pen a chapter about the writers, directors and stars of the silent era for a wonderful new book due out in 2015. Particularly interested in hearing from people with specialist knowledge in early cinema with regards to costume, technical department and editing.
