Marquette Jones wishes her podcast, “Directing Magic,” which focuses on female filmmakers, had been around a decade or so ago, when she was in film school at New York University. She might have felt assured, as the second-oldest person in her class and the only black woman, that everything would turn out OK if she just followed her own path.

Today, Jones pursues her creative projects having the security of a full-time job teaching at the University of Alabama, while living in a great apartment next to the Black Warrior River.

She is on the advisory board of a new nonprofit, Women in Film and Television (WIFT) Alabama, which is part of the international organization for women in the film, television and digital media industry. The chapter is headquartered in Mobile, with plans to add branches in Birmingham, Huntsville and Montgomery.
