Chanel Celebrates Female Directors at the Annual Tribeca Film Festival Luncheon

Actress and juror Dianna Agron expressed her joy at a schedule full of screenings. “I can’t remember the last time I had time to see two films in one week, let alone ten,” she said. “I think that is the beauty of New York—I love cities where you can really engage with the arts.” 

Dianna Agron Offers Up Her Advice for Women Who Want to Break Into Film
Now that is some serious girl power.

One reason to celebrate at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival? The event boasts 51 female directors across both features and short films—the highest number of women filmmakers in the event’s history.

And a slew of stars came out to honor the outstanding women filmmakers presenting work at the fest during the annual Women’s Filmmaker Luncheon today in New York City, where Diane Lane, Dianna Agron, Christina Ricci, Joy Bryant, Mariska Hargitay, Carol Kane, Alice Eve, Zoe Lister-Jones, Melanie Lynskey, and more fêted their fellow ladies at the Chanel-hosted event.

“In every aspect of filmmaking women have been the underdogs, so now its going to be a game changer once the tide switches over and we’re not considered a minority, wouldn’t that be something,” Lane told InStyle of what the future holds for women in film. “Everybody is so impressed with each other’s offerings. It’s such a precious and vulnerable time to offer up your creative endeavors and so I feel a sense of honor to honor them. And I think it’s very brave and audacious to take the risk of making a film.”

Agron echoed her sentiments, but suggested that there’s still more work to be done. “The second that there’s much more talk of what is lacking, the reaction is that its being nurtured and supported much more than it was before,” the actress shared. “I think this is due to the last couple of years and the conversations that have been happening surrounding that. I think its great and it needs to be nurtured more, and it will be.” As for her advice to someone who wants to break into the industry? Don’t give up. “With any new career you have to be persistent and tough and relentless. And this one more than ever you have to have thick skin,” she stated.

Amy Schumer Thinks She Might Look Like Dianna Agron “If She Were Stung by a Million Bees”

“Last time I was here, right form the show, I got courtside tickets to a Laker game. Schumer was randomly seated next to Glee’s Dianna Agron at the game."She played the cheerleader Quinn. That lets you know how hot she is,” she said of the TV star. “She’s like the most gorgeous girl ever. Her name was Quinn on that show. To pull of that name…if my name were Quinn on a show, they’d be like, ‘Oh, the jolly Irish groundskeeper that does a jig time and again?’"Photos of the two sitting courtside then appeared on the big screen."Is she not an angel? The whole night she’s posing because she knows people are taking pictures of her. I obviously don’t! I learned that my resting face is just a scowl. And I learned that have what I now call an 'at-risk chin.’ This is not a good section. If I don’t keep it at sea level it just doubles itself…I [have] no idea people are taking pictures. I’m pounding red wine. I thought it was great. I get red wine teeth right out the gate, you know? Just the first sniff of merlot. Just True Bloodmouth. I look like I’ve been feeding."Schumer then joked about the manner in which she eats popcorn.So, what did she learn from sitting next to Agron?"I look like her, actually. I look like her if she were stung by a million bees. It’s true! I look like her if she were like becoming The Hulk. She wanted to be friends and I’m like, 'We can’t. We’re not the same thing.’ She was telling me hot people problems, like, 'He won’t stop calling,’ and I’m like, 'I hate that.’”

Halloween is my favorite. I love to dress up and that whole experience of costumes. That’s why I love my job so much. I love the departure from the normal character — the more imaginative character. I grew up in a world where fantasy, dress-up, and all those things were so deeply rooted in my sense of love and admiration; so that’s a big thing for me.

'Bare': Love Lies Where Two Paths Cross in the Desert
In a very small town in the middle of the Nevada desert a young girl strips off her clothes, a drifter gets vulnerable and opens her heart, drugs factor without judgment, and the two characters veer into darkness as they hopefully and hopelessly sear...

The film brings us Sarah (Dianna Agron, Glee), a young girl who has been following the path set for her by her family and her small town, she has a boyfriend and works as a cashier at a supermarket until she meets Pepper (Paz de La Huerta, Boardwalk Empire), a drifter, who is doing some drug deals and schemes in town. As she gets more and more involved in her new friend’s world, Sarah gets a job in a strip club and gets caught up in between two worlds.

On how such worlds can collide and what can be someone’s motivation for such a change, Agron says of her character Sarah:

She wants something different, but she can’t put her finger on it, until she meets Pepper and becomes exposed to so many things that are out of her realm of comfort and imagination but sometimes it takes someone else to put a finger on it to really inspire change.

I think life lessons come in times of need, want, and in times of inconvenience. I think they can come from somebody on the street or through an important figure in your life; you just have to be really open for them to move you in a way that they are intended to.

Glee Goodbye: Counting down the 10 Best Glee Characters of All Time!

Six years have gone by in the halls of McKinley High. Countless moments of singing, countless moments of laughing and most importantly, countless moments of crying. The characters from Glee, despite their generic outlook, do hold a sense of creativity within them. So between Kurt Hummel, Santana Lopez and plenty more, we chose our top ten characters that have been appeared in the show – going all the way back to the first episode!

4.  Quinn Fabray (portrayed by Dianna Agron)
Cue the united sigh! Quinn Fabray was one of the show’s main characters during the freshman season and ever since then her screen time deteriorated and deteriorated. But what I do appreciate about Quinn’s character is the situations that she has gone through. From cheating exes and pressurising parents to a traumatic pregnancy and a car crash, you could say that Quinn went through it all. What I hold on to the most however is Agron’s portrayal. It was never uttered that Fabray was going through depression but from the sighs of lost hope and constant agony in her existence on screen it was made pretty evident. Quinn may have been compressed into “Puck’s girlfriend” by the end of her run but we shall never forget what Agron successful threaded into her character.
