The producers of  "Show Her the Money," a new feature documentary exposing the systemic funding gap for female entrepreneurs directed by Ky Dickens, have announced that it will be released theatrically in Los Angeles and New York on December 1, 2023. 

“I’m thrilled to open theatrically in Los Angeles and New York – two huge hubs of innovation, dream-building, and inclusion,” said Dickens, who’s repped for commercial and brand assignments by STORY. “My hope is that audiences embrace the bootstrapping, inspirational stories the way film festival goers have.” 

“Show Her the Money” won the award for Best Documentary at the Los Angeles Film Festival, Twin Cities Film Festival and the Women’s Film Festival. To learn more about the film and to screen a trailer, visit its website at https://showherthemoneymovie.com/.

“Show Her the Money” exposes the staggering gender gap in venture capital (VC) funding for women entrepreneurs - only 1.9 percent of $238.3 billion available goes to female entrepreneurs - while heralding the determined women who are vigorously and successfully upending the deeply entrenched system. The film follows four visionary female entrepreneurs as they endure uphill battles to turn their ideas into reality. Diipa Büller-Khosla, founder of indē wild, creates beauty products based in ayurveda tradition, empowering South Asian women to celebrate heritage. Jasmine Jones, founder of Myya, wants to make shopping for mastectomy bras empowering, convenient and sexy for breast cancer survivors. Marian Leitner’s company, Archer Roose, sells luxury wines in cans while also lowering the carbon footprint of the wine industry. Vicky Pasche aspires to change the world of fashion with Dapper Boi, a gender-neutral, body inclusive apparel line.

Along with female founders, the film introduces us to female “funders,” women who invest in women-owned businesses. Audiences will meet Dawn LaFreeda, who went from waiting tables to owning more franchise restaurants than any other woman in the United States and Pocket Sun, the youngest woman ever to start her own VC Fund and recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the top 100 most powerful women in the country.

Emmy® and Golden Globe® Award-winning actress Sharon Gless (“Cagney & Lacey,” “Queer as Folk,” “Burn Notice”) serves as an executive producer.  Other executive producers include Catherine Gray, Ky Dickens, Dawn LaFreeda, Diana Greshtchuk, and Wendy Ryan.
