Greenlit Productions is collaborating with American writer-producer, Jane Applegate, to produce an innovative hybrid documentary series about remarkable women behind iconic men around the world. Each episode features expert interviews, archival footage, cutting-edge animation, and scripted scenes.


Remarkable Women – Out of the Shadows shines a light on untold stories about the strength, leadership and influence thousands of women had on global literature, art, politics, culture, and science. Our anthology series features stories told by a diverse and talented group of primarily female filmmakers from several European countries, including Finland, Romania, Germany, Poland, and Ireland. Future seasons will include stories about women from Asia, India, Africa, the United Kingdom, South America, and the U.S.


We are working with female filmmakers from around the world to collect and tell many other untold stories.

The documentary series is supported the Creative Europe MEDIA Programme.
