For Your Consideration

Join Film Fatales for an online discussion about how to launch a successful awards campaign. For Your Consideration highlights Gotham Award winning and Spirit Award nominated director Antoneta Alamat Kusijanović (Murina), Oscar nominated director Rintu Thomas (Writing With Fire), and Spirit Award-winning and Gotham-nominated producer Mynette Louie (I Carry You With Me). Moderated by Film Fatales member Luchina Fisher (Mama Gloria).

Awards matter in raising the visibility of films for a mainstream audience, introducing new cultural perspectives and ultimately shaping the world in which we live. In the past 94 years, only three women have won an Oscar for Best Director and only seven have been nominated. Come hear from filmmakers who have directed or produced feature films that have been nominated for, or won, Spirit Awards, Gotham Awards, and Academy Awards. Dive into what it takes to launch a successful awards campaign with limited resources. With support from event partners The Gotham, Ghetto Film School, HUSSLUP, PANO, and WrapWomen.
