Sundance Film Festival has announced its 2018 shorts programs. Thirty-five of the 69 shorts screening, or about 51 percent, are directed or co-directed by women. This marks a very slight increase from last year’s also-impressive 50 percent women-helmed lineup.

“We are always thrilled to discover new voices in filmmaking through the short film program: they take risks in story and style you might not expect,” Sundance Senior Programmer Mike Plante stated in a press release.

Adinah Dancyger’s “Cheer Up Baby” will screen in the U.S. Narrative Short lineup, as will Mariama Diallo’s “Hair Wolf.” The former tells the story of a young woman recovering from a sexual assault, while the latter sees Brooklyn residents trying to defend a local black hair salon from literal culture-sucking white women.

'Pan' Gets New October 2015 Release Date
Giving both the film and the filmmakers some extra breathing room, the opening date of Warner Bros. Pictures' action adventure Pan has been moved to fall and will begin its global launch with the new domestic release date of October 9, 2015. The announcement was made today by Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, and Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President, International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures. Pan will now go up against Relativity's Kidnap and Universal's Steve Jobs on October 9. Here's what Dan Fellman had to say in a statement.

"We wanted to give Pan the space to extend its theatrical run, so taking it out of the cluttered summer season made the most sense. Moving the film to the heart of the fall will allow us more time to screen the picture, enabling us to capitalize on what we anticipate will be strong word of mouth."

Veronika Kwan Vandenberg added her own statement.

Call The Midwife Season 4 Review

Call the Midwife, now in its fourth season on PBS, must be one of the most conflicted series on television. On the one hand, it's an exceedingly comforting feeling to return to Nonnatus House and catch up with our lovely midwives. But that cozy feeling is soon punctuated by the screams of mothers in labor, and the high-pitched sequels of their newborns. Duty calls! Though the show's source material was exhausted by the close of the second season, Heidi Thomas and her team of writers have found plenty of new ways to explore all aspects of maternity and motherhood in Poplar, while still keeping the stories feeling true to the real experiences of Jennifer Worth, or "Jenny Lee" on the show (who, though her character version has left us, is still narrating each episode thanks to Vanessa Redgrave's soothing, framing overtones). [caption id="attachment_432329" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via PBS/caption] Nonnatus House, though, feels somewhat scattered these days.

Call The Midwife Returns To PBS March 29th With Season 4 – Review – Preview

Call the Midwife ended the third season by putting itself in a very tricky position, although it at least managed to get people very interested in how things were going to continue.

The last season ends with Jenny getting a new perspective on life when Chummy’s mother dies, and the result is that Jenny decides to leave Nonnatus House. There’s something both fantastic, and completely insane, about the move, especially considering that it’s supposed to be her story, and it’s her voice-over walking us through everything. It actually becomes a little unnerving to continue listening to Vanessa Redgrave talking about what’s going on as the fourth season plays out.

You have to expect big things to kick off the season, which is hard to put into perspective, because the show is nothing if not subdued in its overall progression.

For a show like Call the Midwife,
