TRIBECA AND CHANEL ANNOUNCE RECIPIENT OF 2019 PRODUCTION FUNDS FROM 5TH ANNUAL THROUGH HER LENS: THE TRIBECA CHANEL WOMEN'S FILMMAKER PROGRAM

Jurors Diane Kruger, Dede Gardner, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sam Taylor-Johnson and Paula Weinstein Award CHAMP Full Production Funds Along with Support From Tribeca Studios

NEW YORK, NY- November 6, 2019 - - Tribeca Enterprises and CHANEL concluded the fifth annual THROUGH HER LENS: The Tribeca Chanel Womens Filmmaker Program, announcing the recipient who will receive full production funding for her original short film at a cocktail reception this evening in New York City.

Writer/director Hannah Peterson and producer Taylor Shung were selected by the jury to receive the production grant, along with production support from Tribeca Studios for their short film, CHAMP. In addition, the other four writer/directors in the program each received a development grant to support continued work on their respective films to bring them closer to production. A total of $100,000 in filmmaker grants was awarded amongst the five projects.

Following an intensive, three-day workshop, the filmmakers from the five projects selected pitched their projects to a jury comprised of: producer Dede Gardner (Moonlight, The Big Short), actor Diane Kruger (355, In the Fade), actor Gugu Mbatha-Raw(Motherless Brooklyn, The Morning Show )director Sam Taylor-Johnson (A Million Little Pieces, Nowhere Boy)and producer and Tribeca Chief Content Officer Paula Weinstein ( Grace and Frankie, The Perfect Storm, Recount).

Since we created Through Her Lens five years ago, it has developed from a three-day mentorship program to a vibrant community of storytellers and industry leaders - all of whom have raised their voices in support of their fellow women filmmakers. With great pride, we welcome this years filmmakers, said Paula Weinstein, Chief Content Officer of Tribeca Enterprises.

From the jury: Selecting a winner was challenging. All of the projects and scripts were so well put together. The filmmakers are attentively listening to the world around them and directly responding.

The project we selected told a story about a big issue in an intimate and succinct form that is relatable. Hannah Peterson stayed true to the seriousness of the subject without forfeiting joy.

The winning project, CHAMP, centers on point guard Genevieve who, while traveling on a train through Texas for an away game, has an unwanted encounter with her high school basketball coach. Wielding her strategy and grit off the court, Genevieve finds a way to retaliate.

I feel like one of the best parts of this program is that every film feels like it is going to be made no matter what. But receiving the funds means that me and my producer Taylor Shung can make our film in the best way possible which is extremely exciting and also just to be a part of this Tribeca and CHANEL family gives it this extra boost that is a very unique privilege, said Hannah Peterson.

The announcement wraps up an impactful program, presented by Tribeca and CHANEL, in collaboration with Pulse Films, and facilitated by Tribeca Film Institute (TFI), which offered the participants project support, one-on-one mentorship, peer-to-peer sessions, and master classes on directing, costume design, composing, producing and editing.

Writer/Director Hannah Peterson and Producer Taylor Shung with CHAMP

Writer/Director Kant Lentz and Producer Roja Gashtili with COCHE BOMBA

Writer/Director Bane Fakih and Producer Birgit Gernb ck with KEEP IT TOGETHER
