Women and Hollywood celebrated one of its 10th anniversary events at the Time Warner Center in New York City on October 17, 2017.
The celebration included screenings of Vanessa Coscia’s “ILE O Curta” and Brittany Fennell’s “Q.U.E.E.N.,” the respective NYC winner and runner up of the First-Time Female Filmmaker Contest. We also presented the NYC Trailblazer Awards to director Julie Taymor (“The Lion King,” “Frida”), director Amma Asante (“Belle,” “Where Hands Touch”), HBO Documentary Films president Sheila Nevins, GameChanger Films president Mynette Louie, and director Julie Dash (“Daughters of the Dust,” “Queen Sugar”).
Congratulations to our NYC Trailblazers (pictured above from left to right) and First-Time Female Filmmaker Contest honorees! And thank you to everyone who joined us to celebrate!
