Director - Producer
 
For the breadth of their collective courage to undertake The Goddess Project which took them on a six month journey across America to discover how women from diverse backgrounds feel and express their individual paths to empowerment. Sara Landas shares TheWIFTS Documentary Award 2014 with Holli Rae.

A native of Los Angeles, California, Sara Landas discovered her love for filmmaking at the age of seven when her parents brought home their first camcorder. With a passion for performing and an avid storyteller, the camera enabled her to take her stories to the next level by creating the unique visions she had in her head. Sara began taking film classes as early on as she could and after graduating from high school, she attended Columbia College Hollywood and majored in editing. Landas has since worked in many different areas of the film industry ranging from network television to short form art films. Each step in her journey was perfectly placed to lead her to her true calling, documentary filmmaking.

Sara & Holli's Bus

Sara met Holli in 2008, and they discovered the power of having a supportive sisterhood and their worlds were changed forever. As their bond became stronger and their dreams became bolder, they started meeting other ambitious ladies who were also on the path towards pursuing their dreams. Meeting those women and hearing about their unique journeys of self-discovery inspired them to start envisioning how they could share their incredible stories with the world. The Goddess Project was sparked from the duo's desire to see more empowering content for women and girls in the media. Movies play a huge role in shaping culture and nowadays only 11% of all clearly identifiable protagonists in films are female.

In the summer of 2012, Sara and Holli made it their mission to change this. They decided to pack their lives into a mini school bus and hit the road to document inspiring real-life stories from women across the nation. Throughout their 6 month journey, they met incredible women from all walks of life who bravely volunteered to bare their souls in front of their lens. They interviewed artists, mothers, healers, businesswomen and scholars about the life-changing experiences that shaped them to become who they are today. By the end of their 10,000 mile trip across the U.S., they had sat down with over 100 women who shared their stories of realizing their potential, overcoming their fears, and creating the life of their dreams. The Goddess Project is currently in post-production and slated for release in the summer of 2015.
