Developments in Information and Communication Technology is slowly changing this by opening up the opportune for women from production to exhibition through websites such as “VIMEO”, “DAILYMOTION”, “TWITCH”, “LIVELEAK”, “VEOH”, “BREAK”, “METACAFE”, and the most used “YOUTUBE”. This paper would speak about the changes in film making technology in which it has expanded opportunity for women to work in. How ICT has has changed the technology of film making paving way for women to contribute more in this men dominated media.
