LAFF Spotlights Female Editors

LA Film Festival Director Stephanie Allain

We’re excited to read in a Variety article that the LA Film Festival will be spotlighting the achievements of women in the film industry:

“Stephanie Allain, in her second year as the festival director, says the fest aims to celebrate the contributions of women each year, with 2013 featuring the accomplishments of female editors, including a luncheon for editors to share ideas with each other and with the public.

‘Every year we’re going to put the spotlight on a different group of women in the business: composers, cinematographers, costume designers, you name it,” says Allain, who adds that next year, “we’re getting Wendy (Melvoin) and Lisa (Coleman) to talk about how they score title sequences.’”

The festival will also include the program, "Iconic Moment”, that will which spotlights costume design held in conjunction with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and curated by costume designer Sophie de Rakoff.
