Muse Awards: We hope to see you at the 38th Annual Muse Awards this Thursday! In addition to our usual festivities, we are honored to have Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul give welcoming remarks, and Commissioner Julie Menin will present the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment “Made in New York” award to actor and producer Alysia Reiner.
Time Magazine: Kudos to Time Magazine for naming “The Silence Breakers” as the person of the year. It’s about time sexual assault victims’ voices were heard.
Francesca Andre: NYWIFT member Francesca Andre is making waves with her short film Charcoal, a powerful look into “colorism” within the black community, focusing on women of different ages who wish their skin was lighter so they would conform with the sometimes harsh beauty standards of white-dominated American popular culture.
