Quotes by Lynne Stopkewich

"The funny thing about being a director is that everyone wants you to have all the answers all of the time, but sometimes you just don't. I tend to admit this but it doesn't always engender confidence in your cast and crew. [...] I always have an idea of what I want but like to remain open to other ideas when they come up. Then I go with my gut."
-- Lynne Stopkewich (source)

"You come out of film school and say, 'Oh, yes, I'm a hot-shot, and I'm going to do this film.' Then you realize what it takes to get a film off the ground, and get it made. [...] If I have any advice for first-time filmmakers, it would be to get really involved with the editing of their films. To see what they did right, and what they did wrong on the set."
-- Lynne Stopkewich (source)

Quote about Lynne Stopkewich

"[Lynne] Stopkewich's relationship to feminism has been a complex one, involving shifting allegiances and priorities, difficult negotiations within the frankly patriarchal world of commercial feature filmmaking, and a carefully cultivated sense of ambiguity around cultural norms and definitions of femininity."
-- Lee Parpart (source)
