HOW TO BALANCE MOTHERHOOD & FILMMAKING
PANELISTS: LAKE BELL, AUGUSTINE FRIZZELL, MARIA NOVARO (More TBD)
Moderated by Guest TBD
Finding the optimum work-life balance as a mom, or as a filmmaker, is hard enough, but navigating both – two extremely all-consuming endeavors – is a real challenge. This panel brings together women in the film industry to share tales of difficulty and triumph and to offer advice to other filmmaker-parents, or those considering taking the leap to multi hyphenate themselves.
Lake Bell’s In A World, premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, and her first child was born in 2014. Her latest film, I Do… Until I Don’t was released in 2017.María Novaro is a legendary Mexican filmmaker and feminist who began film school as a mother of two young children. Her first feature film, Lola, won the Silver Ariel Award for Best First Work in 1989, and she continues to make critically acclaimed films including Danzón (1991), The Good Herbs (2000), and Tesoros (2017). She is currently the Director of the Mexican Film Institute. Augustine Frizzell became a mom at 18 and directed her first feature-length film, A24’s Never Goin’ Back, at 39. This coming-of-age buddy comedy inspired by Frizzell’s own wild adolescence premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival and was released in theaters last month.
