Julianne Moore, Christine Vachon, and More Team Up with Tribeca and Chanel to Support Women Filmmakers

Through Her Lens, a three-day program for U.S.-based female writers and directors, culminates in a pitch to industry experts and an award of $75,000 to one filmmaker to produce her project.

Tribeca Enterprises and French luxury goods company Chanel, in collaboration with Pulse Films, are stepping up to support women filmmakers with the launch of Through Her Lens, a three-day program for seven U.S.-based female writers and directors. The inaugural edition, Oct. 26-28, features master classes, one-on-one mentorship, and peer-to-peer sessions, culminating in a pitch presentation before a jury of industry experts where one filmmaker will be awarded $75,000 to produce her project.

The program will cover a range of topics, such as script-to-screen development, story structure, casting, finding collaborators, festival strategy, and distribution. This year’s jurors, mentors, master class instructors, and industry advisors include actor Patricia Clarkson (“Pieces of April”), writer/director Mary Harron (“American Psycho”), writer/director Rebecca Miller (“Maggie’s Plan”) actor Julianne Moore (“Freeheld”), writer/director Anna Boden (“Mississippi Grind”), actor/writer/producer Emily Mortimer (“Doll & Em”), writer/director Catherine Hardwicke (“Miss You Already”), and producer Christine Vachon (“Carol”), among others.
