2018 Recipients: Julie Dash & Nina Menkes. The EOS World Fund is a new global initiative that supports bold & innovative women directors. Launch: Jan 19th 2018, The Black House, Sundance Film Festival.
Created by Apricot Films’ visionary producer / director Gwen Wynne, EOS is a response to the crisis involving the severe lack of women helmers in cinema.
Gwen Wynne’s EOS World Fund seeks out material and artists who are known for their unusual, innovative and provocative cinematic work, in both form and content.
Scorsese’s Film Foundation has just awarded a restoration grant to Mark Toscano at the Academy Film Archives, to photochemically restore Nina Menkes’ feature film, QUEEN OF DIAMONDS (1991). Grants are given to work that is considered “culturally and historically significant”.
