Through her lens: The Tribeca CHANEL Women’s filmmaker program
Tribeca and CHANEL hosted the 2nd annual THROUGH HER LENS: THE TRIBECA CHANEL WOMEN’S FILMMAKER PROGRAM kickoff luncheon at Locanda Verde in New York. Leading female actresses, directors, writers, producers, casting directors and costume designers gathered together to support one another and emerging female filmmakers. During the luncheon, Tribeca Enterprises EVP, Paula Weinstein and Executive Chair of Tribeca Enterprises, Jane Rosenthal spoke to the importance of supporting both the current and next generation of female filmmakers. The three-day workshop from October 25 – 27th aims to balance industry support, artistic development and funding for new and emerging U.S-based female writers and directors of short-form narrative films. At the end of the program each of the five filmmakers will pitch her project to a jury of industry experts. One filmmaker will be awarded full financing to produce her short film, along with support of Tribeca Studios and Pulse Films to make the project. The four other projects will each be awarded grant funds to continue the development of their films. The following celebrities attended the kickoff luncheon and wore CHANEL:
