WOMAN’S WORLD: Three years ago, Gucci and the Tribeca Film Institute formed the Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund, aimed at helping independent filmmakers with finishing funds and postproduction guidance. Now the luxury goods house has joined forces with PPR’s Corporate Foundation for Women’s Dignity and Rights to launch the Spotlighting Women Documentary Award for films that focus on remarkable stories involving women and women’s issues. The latter is part of the Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund and will bring an extra $50,000 prize to film projects that highlight the courage, compassion and contributions of women from around the world.
“This award dedicated to films about women is a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness about women’s issues such as violence, rights and empowerment to a large audience,” said François-Henri Pinault, chairman of the PPR Corporate Foundation for Women’s Dignity and Rights.
