Cynthia’s Picks: WFPF Award, DOC NYC, Kathryn Hahn

WFPF Award: Major congratulations to NYWIFT’s Women’s Film Preservation Fund (WFPF), which received the Archivist’s Round Table of Metropolitan New York’s 2019 Outstanding Support of Archives award last week. The award recognizes an individual or organization for notable contributions to archival records or archives programs through political, financial or moral support.

DOC NYC: There are more than 20 projects featuring NYWIFT members in a key role screening at DOC NYC next month! It’s wonderful to see so many members of our community represented and recognized for their outstanding work. 

Kathryn Hahn: Loved this New York Times feature on Kathryn Hahn, whose new series Mrs. Fletcher just debuted on HBO. “The sort of raw, unadorned, often private sensuality that Hahn portrays so well feels like something new, a terrain that television has only recently begun to dig into. “

Wild Nights with Emily: A Retake on What You May Have Believed about Emily Dickinson

What happens when an esteemed comic actress like Molly Shannon, a screenwriter with a quirky perspective and a penchant for cinematic originality, political causes and literary scholarship, and a legendary American poet who some say has been misunderstood and misinterpreted by decades of academic critics collaborate?

"Wild Nights with Emily" happens. The unique film, thoroughly original and entertaining, is inspired by the life of Emily Dickinson. It’s also a creative spin on a literature professor’s reinterpretation of Emily Dickinson’s life and personal relationships.
