The Kilgannons are a typical Irish family in 1974 Buffalo. However, the world is changing fast, the generation gap is widening, and the future is up for grabs.

THE IMITATION GAME
 
Followed by a Q&A with screenwriter Graham Moore
 
Moderated by Scott Silver (8 Mile, The Fighter)

---------------
During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst and war hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to investigate a reported burglary. They instead ended up arresting Turing himself on charges of 'gross indecency', an accusation that would lead to his devastating conviction for the criminal offense of homosexuality - little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing. Famously leading a motley group of scholars, linguists, chess champions and intelligence officers, he was credited with cracking the so-called unbreakable codes of Germany's World War II Enigma machine. An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man, THE IMITATION GAME follows a genius who under nail-biting pressure helped to shorten the war and, in turn, save thousands of lives. Directed by Morten Tyldum with a screenplay by Graham Moore, the film stars BenedictCumberbatchKeira KnightleyMatthew GoodeRory KinnearAllen LeechMatthew BeardCharles Dance and Mark Strong.

NYWIFT Free Event: Women's Work: Film, TV, Musical Theatre and Game Composers

NYWIFT

Womens' Work: Film , TV, Musical Theatre and Game Composers
Event: Wednesday May 14, 2014


"Women in general rarely get any press within the film and television industry, which contributes to the perception that there are no women composing for film and television, which contributes to the perception that there are no women to hire for the good films that get the press and eventually the awards nominations, extending the decades long lack of women getting awarded in the industry, which feeds the perception that there are no women composers, and the cycle continues. I hear it and see it all the time".
— Female Music Executive in a piece of private correspondence

Our panel of talented musical storytellers is sure to ignite a lively and engaging discussion about the issues facing female composers. With first class credits across a wide variety of disciplines, panelists will share career strategies, major issues within the industry and some juicy anecdotes along the way. 
Come for a new perspective on the universal concerns of composers: temp scores, sample libraries, copyright agreements between director and composers, vertical layering in game composition, collaboration on big Broadway shows and more!

Grant has triumphed, pushing past gender and racial attitudes to break through with many "firsts." She is the first African-American contract player on a daytime TV soap (Another World).  She is the first woman to win a Grammy for her score Don't Bother Me… She is also the first woman and the first African-American to have two shows running on Broadway simultaneously.  Grant received a Helen Hayes Award for her performance in Having Our Say. She is the recipient of the National Black Theatre Festival's Living Legend Award (1999) and the AUDELCO's Outstanding Pioneer Award in 2000.  In addition to her Grammy for Best Score, she has been honored with an OBIE Award for music and lyrics, a Drama Desk Award for lyrics and performance and is the recipient of an NAACP Image Award.



Sarah Plant is a composer, flutist and keyboardist who scores feature films, documentaries, animations, multimedia, and museum installations.

Phillips is the author of the bestselling book, A Composer's Guide to Game Music (The MIT Press). Called "a fine achievement!" by composer Harry Gregson-Williams, A Composer's Guide to Game Music was described by The Boston Globe as "the first book designed to help experienced musicians brave the transition to the world of game composing."

Bias in Reality Television with the Editors Collective
Event: Thursday May 8, 2014

The Editors Collective (EC) has partnered with NYWIFT to present a conversation about reality television content that promotes negative stereotypes (racial, gender, sexual orientation, etc.).
Working in reality television, many producers and editors are asked to craft shows with material that reinforces negative bias, and are unsure how to best intervene. This panel aims to encourage solidarity and a sense of agency among producers and editors who want to affect change in the reality television industry.

Please sign up for the Works by Women mailing list.  We only send one email a week (see our most recent update here) and it is filled with great information about upcoming Works by Women “Play” dates as well as qualifying productions (50% of the writers, directors, and designers working on a production must be women) throughout the city. 
We are currently supporting a total of 5 LPTW member productions!

SWAN DAY 2014: The Supreme Price 3/29/14

SWAN Day 2014 Event:
The Supreme Price 

Saturday Mar. 29, 2014


Join NYWIFT, SAG-AFTRA, School of Visual Arts Film department, Women in the Arts & Media Coalition, Women Make Movies and HerFlix at the SVA Theater for a screening of the documentary The Supreme Price in recognition of SWAN (Support Women Artists Now) Day, an annual event on the last Saturday of March that celebrates women artists.

There will be a Q&A with industry leaders and reception following the screening. The event will begin with opening remarks from Reeves Lehman, Chairman of Film, Video and Animation at School of Visual Arts.

The Supreme Price (Produced/Directed by Joanna Lipper) is a feature-length documentary that traces the evolution of the Pro-Democracy Movement in Nigeria and efforts to increase the participation of women in leadership roles. Following the annulment of her father's victory in Nigeria's Presidential Election and her mother's assassination by agents of the military dictatorship, Hafsat Abiola faces the challenge of transforming a corrupt culture of  governance into a democracy capable of serving Nigeria's most marginalized population: women. Produced and directed by Joanna Lipper, this film was made with  support from The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Ford Foundation/Just Films, ITVS, the Gucci Tribeca Spotlighting Women Documentary Award, Chicken & Egg Pictures, Women Make Movies and IFP Spotlight on Documentaries. The extended trailer for this film was commissioned by Gucci to launch their global Chime for Change Campaign at TED 2013. 

After the screening, stay for a conversation with ...

Other directing and producing credits include Inside Out: Portraits of Children, Growing Up Fast and Little Fugitive. Lipper's book about teen parenthood Growing Up Fast, was published in 2003 by Picador to notable praise, including Publisher's Weekly, which called it "compelling and important."

Drama Desk Panel 4/4 11:45 am @ Sardi's




$50 "Member Price" for all Coalition members
includes lunch at Sardi's!

DISTINGUISHED ACTOR JOHN GLOVER  (LINCOLN CENTER’S MACBETH) 
FILLS OUT DRAMA DESK’S 
“WHY SHAKESPEARE? WHY NOW?” 
PANEL DISCUSSION AT SARDI’S ON FRIDAY, APRIL 4
Panel also includes directors Daniel Sullivan (The Comedy of Errors) and Julie Taymor (A Midsummer Night’s Dream), and actors Michael Pennington (King Lear) and Scott Shepherd (Cry, Trojans!, based on Troilus & Cressida). 
Carol Rocamora is moderator.

Distinguished American actor John Glover (Witch/A Porter/Murderer 3 in Lincoln Center’s Macbeth) will join Drama Desk’s “Why Shakespeare? Why Now?” at Sardi’s on Friday, April 4 (11:45 AM–2:30 PM). Glover will join actors Michael Pennington and Scott Shepherd and directors Daniel Sullivan and Julie Taymor—in the lively discussion exploring the reasons why New York’s current theater season has such a distinctive Shakespearean flavor. Carol Rocamora, an educator, critic, playwright, translator, and Drama Desk member, will be the moderator.     

With his multiple honors, from Tony, Drama Desk and Obie awards to several Emmy nods, John Glover stands out as one of our most distinctive actors. While best known for his long-running television series Smallville, Glover’s appearances in a host of stage productions from Love! Valour! Compassion! to Waiting for Godot to this season’s Macbeth at Lincoln Center Theater, remain among his most memorable.  

New York’s theater season has struck a welcome chord with both critics and audiences thanks to the critically acclaimed Shakespeare’s Globe productions of Twelfth Night, or What You Will and Richard III (in repertory at the Belasco Theater), Lincoln Center Theater’s Macbeth, the Bard’s The Comedy of Errors (Shakespeare in the Park), King Lear and A Midsummer Night’s Dream (both by Theatre for a New Audience in Brooklyn), and the Wooster Group’s Cry, Trojans! (Troilus & Cressida). The other members of the panel have all distinguished themselves this season in these new productions of Shakespeare’s works: British actor/director Michael Pennington (King Lear) and Julie Taymor (A Midsummer Night’s Dream) both for Theatre for a New Audience; Scott Shepherd (Cry, Trojans!, The Wooster Group’s Troilus & Cressida); and director Daniel Sullivan (The Comedy of Errors, Shakespeare in the Park).

The Drama Desk’s Spring Luncheon/Panel Discussion focusing on Shakespeare will take place at Sardi’s Eugenia Room, 234 West 44th St., on Friday, April 4. It will begin with the luncheon at 11:45 AM, followed by the panel discussion from 1:15–2:30 PM. Tickets—$50 for Drama Desk members and all members of all Women in the Arts & Media Coalition member organization members and $60 for non-members—may be purchased in advance, online at DramaDesk.org, or directly at https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/932325.

An Invitation from WGAE (March 11): Branching Out: A Talk With Jeff Baron



An Invitation from the Writers Guild of America East
The Writers Guild of America, East  invites you and a guest to attend:
Branching Out - Screenwriters Writing Plays and Novels
A talk with Jeff Baron

DATE: March 11, 2014
TIME: 6:30pm EST
LOCATION: Writers Guild of America, East (250 Hudson Street)


RSVP HERE

If you've ever thought about branching out from screenwriting, Jeff Baron can tell you about his experience doing so, as a screenwriter who is also a much-produced playwright and a novelist.

His four original screenplays were all optioned by major Hollywood studios and his TV credits include "The Tracey Ullman Show," "Sisters, Almost Grown (David Chase)," "A Year in the Life" and multiple projects for Nickelodeon.

His play "Visiting Mr. Green" is one of the most produced plays in the past 15 years, with over 500 productions in 42 countries, and his plays "When I Was Five," "Mothers Day" and "Mr. & Mrs. God" have international lives as well.

His first novel "I Represent Sean Rosen" was published by HarperCollins last March, and is now in its second printing. His follow-up novel "Sean Rosen Is Not for Sale" will be published in March 2014.

Using examples from his work, Jeff will speak about the differences among the forms in terms of the role of the writer, the ownership of the project, the craft, the collaborative process, the contract and ownership of one's work, how to get your work seen, and how and how much writers are paid. He'll talk about the effect on writers of recent changes in the businesses of publishing, theatre, television and film.
