Opening Night Film: This Changes Everything
Told first-hand by some of Hollywood’s leading voices (Geena Davis, Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman, Reese Witherspoon, Sandra Oh, Rosario Dawson, Shonda Rhimes, and many more) in front of and behind the camera, THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING takes an incisive look into the history, empirical evidence, and systemic forces that foster gender discrimination and thus reinforce disparity in our culture. Most importantly, the film seeks pathways and solutions from within and outside the industry, and around the world.
The film will be followed by a Q&A with Executive Producer, Simone Pero who is also the President of the Board of the NY Women Film & Television. Simone is Emmy nominated for HBO's The Tale and an Indie Spirit Award nominee.
Opening Night Reception is free to badge and Opening Night ticket holders.
Opening Night Reception will be after the film starting at 9:30PM at:
