Women's Screenwriting Contest

In 2017, we partnered with Brooklyn College's Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema to launch a citywide screenwriting competition which called for stories by, for, or about women in New York City. The contest was aimed at addressing the underrepresentation of women in the film and television industries both on and off the camera, and was part of an ambitious five-part women's initiative announced in the fall of 2016.

One Film, One New York

Crooklyn, director Spike Lee's ode to brownstone Brooklyn, was named the winner of the first-ever city-wide campaign to unite New Yorkers around one great film.
