Horizon Awards support the next generation of female filmmakers by providing grants, mentorship, and networking opportunities. Each awardee receives an all-expenses-paid trip to the Sundance Film Festival.
Last spring, an Instagram post from a fellow Windy City native led Michelle Amor Gillie to co-create The Honorable, a one-hour drama that recently sold to CBS about the first Black woman mayor of Chicago.
CBS recently selected four participants for its 2019-2020 Directors Initiative, which pairs seasoned directors with the network’s showrunners and other industry pros for mentorship and professional development.
For the second year, LMU School of Film and Television has partnered with Film Independent to host this multimedia storytelling event featuring a collection of virtual, augmented, and mixed reality experiences.
