Nasty Women Unite: Tribeca and Chanel Bring Together Female Filmmakers Against Donald Trump

25 October 2016 3:18 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No one said the name “Donald Trump” at the annual Through Her Lens: The Tribeca Chanel Women’s Filmmaker Program kickoff luncheon, held this afternoon at New York City’s Locanda Verde restaurant. But they didn’t need to. As Jane Rosenthal, the Executive Chair of Tribeca Enterprises (and co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival) greeted the crowd with an enthusiastic cry for her fellow “nasty ladies!” to welcome each other, it was clear that the group, composed of leading female actresses, directors, writers, producers, casting directors and costume designers, was already on the same page.

Now in its second year, the Through Her Lens program is a three-day workshop that “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.” This year’s group consists of five filmmakers, who will each pitch their project to »

Tribeca Enterprises and Chanel have announced today the second annual Through Her Lens: The Tribeca Chanel Women’s Filmmaker Program, which brings together industry support, artistic development and funding to assist and help new and emerging U.S.-based female writers and directors of short-form narrative films.

The program has selected five emerging female filmmakers to receive project support, and take part in master classes, one-on-one mentorship and peer-to-peer sessions during a three-day session at the end of this month. At the end of the program, each of the filmmakers will pitch her project to a jury of industry experts, and one filmmaker will be awarded full financing to produce her short film. The four other projects will each be awarded grant funds to continue the development of their films.

19 October 2016 3:16 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Jon Hamm is opening up about his late parents.

“ was twice widowed,” the Keeping Up With the Joneses star said in the November 2016 issue of Elle. “He was divorced from my mom when she died, but even so, there’s a deep sense of tragedy in that. I never had the opportunity to, as an adult, sit down and talk to him about that. It’s a real loss.”

He added, “I was quasi-adopted by my friends’ families. And even today I get e-mails or cards from these women who, for lack of a better word, were my mom. We »

Jon Hamm Opens Up About How Rehab ‘Works’ and If He’ll Ever Have Kids: ‘Never Say Never’

13 October 2016 8:55 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Jon Hamm is getting candid.

The Mad Men star, who admitted himself into a 30-day treatment facility for alcohol addiction in February 2015, recently opened up about the experience to Mr. Porter’s The Journal.

“It has all these connotations, but it’s just an extended period of talking about yourself,” he said. “People go for all sorts of reasons, not all of which are chemically related. But there’s something to be said for pulling yourself out of the grind for a period of time and concentrating on recalibrating the system. And it works. It’s great.”

Hamm, 45, also revealed he undergoes weekly therapy sessions. »

Great Moments in Gay - Sexual Confusion in "Kissing Jessica Stein"

18 June 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Team Experience is sharing favorite Lgbt scenes in cinema for Pride Month. Here's Deborah...

Kissing Jessica Stein is one of my all-time favorite movies, and I could make a whole list of “great moments in gayness” just from Jessica Stein scenes, but there’s one in particular that’s my favorite.

Here’s the quick plot summary: Jessica (Jennifer Westfeldt), cute, quirky, neurotic, single, is reading the personal ads (for you youngsters, that’s the paper equivalent of Tinder or OKCupid), and is struck by one ad in particular. Realizing she’s accidentally been reading in the “Women Seeking Women” section, she throws the paper away, but then decides to answer it anyway. 

Helen (Heather Juergensen) and Jessica begin tentatively seeing each other; Helen, too, is exploring bisexuality for the first time. Helen wants to dive right in, but Jessica is nervous, skittish, and afraid. 

Cut to Helen at Jessica’s place. »

At MoMA PS1 inside the Vw Dome, in conjunction with the Tribeca Film Festival on April 15, 2015, Celia Rowlson-Hall presented an advance preview of Ma, followed by a conversation with Shirin Neshat. In 2013, I spoke with Artistic Director Frédéric Boyer at Michelangelo Frammartino's breathtaking cinematic installation Alberi at PS1.

Sundance: Cinetic Media Launches Management Division (Exclusive)

21 January 2016 10:25 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cinetic Media, the scrappy New York-based film and media company run by John Sloss, is launching a management division targeted to multi-hyphenate talent, Variety has learned.

The company already counts directors such as Richard Linklater (“Boyhood), Justin Lin (“Fast Five”) and Charles Ferguson (“Inside Job”) among its clients. But it’s looking to expand its management portfolio, hoping to capitalize on a moment in Hollywood when up-and-coming talent may struggle to find a foothold at the traditional agencies and the bigger studios. Cinetic has already added a new manager in New York who specializes in actors: Avi Lipski, formerly of Brookside Artist Management.

Cinetic, which helped pool financing for such high-profile art films as “Boyhood” and “Carol,” has ambitions to be a one-stop shop for those who can direct, produce, write and act as many entertainment industry players are straddling the lines between television, film, and digital media.
