Terry’s Picks: Be Yourself, Women in Motion, Making Music

Be Yourself: Costume designer Jenny Beavan talks about her recent Oscar win for Mad Max: Fury Road – and the “drama” sparked by her decision not to glam it up for the awards ceremony.

Women in Motion: Kering and the Cannes Film Festival have announced the second edition of the “Women in Motion” program, which highlights women’s contribution to the film industry and encourages more diversity. The program will present daily “Women in Motion” Talks at the festival – with luminaries from outside the film industry to enrich the conversation – and the “Women in Motion: awards celebrating and encouraging talented women in cinema.

Making Music: Did you know the Academy’s music branch is 92% male? Laura Karpman, co-founder of the Alliance for Women Film Composers, discusses the need for change. NYWIFT members can search the NYWIFT member directory to find a composer for their next project.
