The Light Leaks is an editorial website and LLC created for the support, empowerment, and education of female and GNC filmmakers. Founded in 2017, it's expanded from its initial editorial roots to now include offline events for filmmakers, promotional partnerships for film festivals/female fronted film companies, and more.

The Light Leaks is a team of one. My name is Kim Hoyos and I started The Light Leaks in my college dorm Feb 2017 because I saw a need for a community for female filmmakers. A little about me: my past work experience includes internships at NBC's the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers, MTV, Rachel Antonoff, #GirlGaze, Femsplain and freelance work for Spotify, Millennials of NY, and more. I've independently directed, written, edited, and produced 7 short films, 4 webseries, 2 documentaries, and countless social media clips. I've spoken at events for Mozilla, Urban Outfitters, Her Conference, Girls Who Code, Stareable, and I've received press from Urban Outfitters, HelloFlo, Amy Poehler's Smart Girls, NYU, BUST Magazine, and more.


I am passionate about the Light Leaks, and speak in plural "we" because I know that it is a community beyond me. Running the company has allowed me to connect creators across the country (and internationally) with a shared interested and diverse identities and it's absolutely beautiful. The internet allows for work to be seen, voices heard, and art supported. In a little over a year we've reached 35k+ views, published over 30 pieces of original content, our pieces have been republished by BUST Magazine and Issa Rae Productions, we've had 3 live events, and more!

The mainstream film industry is run by straight, upper class, white males- it’s been studied and proven over and over again. Changing the landscape of media is so important because the film industry is not the price of a ticket, but the price of contributing to a system that does not do a majority of our society justice in regards to representation. The media we consume teaches us about each other and ourselves without diversity and accurate portrayals of representation we're left with stereotypes. Everyday, the Light Leaks combats that. We work to be a source of the latest trends in the industry, facilitate honest conversations through offline events, create chances to connect with other creators and provide opportunities to have work highlighted. 

Please consider joining our grassroots efforts to make the film and tv industries a more inclusive space.

Best,
Kim
