Guest: 51 Fest Film Festival Program Director Anne Hubbel
51Fest, presented by Women in the World and IFC Center, today unveiled the lineup for the inaugural event. Celebrating the voice, vision and stories of the female majority through compelling screenings and conversations, all by or about women, the first annual 51Fest will be held July 18-21 in New York City.
51Fest will open, July 18th, at New York City’s SVA Theatre with Kathy Griffin: A Hell of a Story, a docu-comedy focused on the fallout from the comedian’s infamous photo holding a mask of Donald Trump’s likeness and her battle to reclaim her life and career. After the screening, Griffin will sit down in conversation with Tina Brown, CEO and founder of Tina Brown Live Media/Women in the World.
Over the course of four days, 51Fest will offer audiences premieres of feature films, series and documentaries, followed by in-depth discussions with creators and stars. The program includes the New York debuts of After the Wedding, with producer and star Julianne Moore in person for a post-screening conversation. Tickets. Schedules and more at www.51fest.org
