We’re spotlighting Tribeca selections helmed by women directors every day of Women’s History Month.
Throughout the month of March, you’ll be seeing films by everyone from Nicole Holofcener and Mira Nair to Sarah Polley and Kelly Reichardt, along with rising artists like Talya Lavie and Meera Menon, two of the four winners of our ongoing Nora Ephron Prize, a festival competition for woman moviemakers devoted to the late, pioneering legend.
Follow along and seek these talents and their cinematic treasures out!
The success of Wonder Woman this weekend even impressed John Fithian, National Association of Theatre Owners CEO & President who exclaimed, ““I want to congratulate Patty Jenkins, Gal Gadot and Warner Bros on the terrific opening, but Wonder Woman’s success is everybody’s success. AT NATO, at CinemaCon, we have for years called for diversity in movies that match the diversity of our audiences, not just because it’s a good idea but because it’s good business. What we really look forward to is the day when a movie directed by a woman and telling a woman’s story is no longer news because it was successful – or even that it was produced at all – because such movies should be a matter of routine. We will grow our audiences by telling more stories that tell their stories.”
Warner Bros./DC’s Wonder Woman will fly over Disney/Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 at the domestic box office this coming weekend with more than $387M. This easily will make Wonder Woman the highest-grossing title of the domestic summer B.O. and the second best so far this year after Disney’s Beauty and the Beast ($504M).
