Broad Street Pictures' new drama, Equity, the first female-driven Wall Street movie, is honored to be selected as a Creative Coalition 2015 Spotlight Initiative Film.

 “It’s exciting to see a notable female-led film being released, especially with only 1.9 percent of recent Hollywood releases being directed by women.  Not only is this the first film that showcases the executive women of Wall Street, it’s also a film that artistically and deftly weaves a thrilling tale set in the financial arena,” said The Creative Coalition CEO Robin Bronk.  “The Creative Coalition is proud to count Equity among other notable films in the 2015 Spotlight Initiative slate.”  For full story click here:
