Seed&Spark’s Founder and CEO Emily Best will teach a workshop for filmmakers on successful crowdfunding.
2015 ATHENA FILM FESTIVAL — Panels and Workshops *nyc 2/5-8/15
One of the great things that Melissa Silverstein has created, in addition to her essential weekly newsletter WOMEN AND HOLLYWOOD, is the socially aware and empowering women’s Film Festival, THE ATHENA FILM FESTIVAL, now in its 5th year, held in NYC at Barnard College. The screenings are strong and representative of the incredible creativity of women filmmakers in front of and behind the camera. The panels and workshops, some livestreamed, are incisive, informative and helpful. Women can network freely throughout the festival. Participants will grow professionally and personally.
Panels and Workshops
Join Barnard alumnae who work in entertainment and media, to discuss the nuts and bolts of creating a career, the different pressures women face in the industry, and how to navigate to success.
Join us for a conversation with several established cinematographers who will talk about the lack of women in their field, and how they broke into the “private club” and became some of the most in-demand names in the game.
This master class on directing for film features Gina Prince-Bythewood, writer, director, and producer.
Join Academy Award® winning producer, Cathy Schulman, President of Mandalay Pictures, for a conversation on producing in Hollywood.
This master class on producing for television features Stephanie Liang, Emmy-award winning producer.
Too often film studios and businesses think about diversity only in terms of their own employees, motivated to fix homogeneity by notions of fairness or to avoid liability. Join us as we ask a wider set of questions about diversity.
Tharp will join us for a conversation on how she has incorporated film in her dance-making work.
Join the film fatales to discuss how they make films while making ends meet and how this community is helping women in the industry.
