One of GreenLight Women’s mission objectives is to bring awareness to and celebrate the creative work done by diverse women over 40. By curating a cross-section of films featuring women in a wide range of roles – as producers, directors, actors, crew members and executives – and featuring thoughtful panel discussions with the filmmakers, we get to experience the joy of quality filmmaking and be reminded of the many avenues one can pursue in making filmed entertainment content.

Recent screenings include:

  • Exposure – a documentary about a group of Arab and Western women who embark on a trek across the disappearing Arctic Sea, directed and produced by Holly Morris. GreenLight Women’s Carolyn Pfeiffer moderated a panel discussion that included Morris, producer Jill Mazursky and Jeremy Gold, Executive Producer and President of Production at Blumhouse Television.
  • Thirteen Lives – Amazon Studios and GreenLight Women hosted a special Academy screening for Ron Howard’s action drama Thirteen Lives, the true story of the rescue of thirteen young Thai soccer players trapped in a cave during the monsoon season, starring Viggo Mortensen and Colin Farrell. Held in Amazon’s beautiful Culver City facility, guests were treated to a Thai-themed buffet and the film’s producer, Karen Lunder, joined us for a live Q&A.
  • Chantilly Bridge25 years after her ground-breaking Sundance hit Chantilly Lace, director Linda Yellen explores the lives of the same characters as they catch up, grieve a death and share their stories, starring Talia Shire, Jill Eikenberry and Lindsay Crouse.
