How Alexandra Shipp Prepared to Judge (and Dress for) the Tribeca Chanel Women’s Filmmaker Program


Chanel and the Tribeca Festival held their eighth annual three-day workshop for emerging filmmakers in New York this month. The collaboration with Pulse Films ended with a cocktail party on Thursday – where a $100,000 prize was up for grabs.

After listing each of the finalists’ projects and their distinctive qualities, actor Thuso Mbedu announced the winner after a drumbeat: “Fishtank” by Wendi Tang and Hongwei Wu – a film about a 28-year-old protagonist, Jules, who been sober for a year but keeps throwing up fish. As expected from a life-changing announcement, applause filled the space and tears flowed.
