Cannes, May 16, 2014 – Calvin Klein Inc., the IFP (Independent Filmmaker Project), Calvin Klein Collection and euphoria Calvin Klein held their fourth annual event celebrating women in film at a private villa last night at the 67th Cannes Film Festival.
The invitation-only event, hosted by Joana Vicente, Executive Director of IFP, and Francisco Costa, Women’s Creative Director of Calvin Klein Collection, drew influential members of the fashion, film and beauty worlds to recognize notable women who have made an impact on film this year. This year’s event paid tribute to Naomi Watts, Lupita Nyong’o, Julianne Moore and Rooney Mara, who is the face of the DOWNTOWN Calvin Klein fragrance.
Last year’s event celebrated Nicole Kidman, Carey Mulligan, Naomie Harris, Lynne Ramsay and Ms. Mara, who joined a distinguished group of women previously celebrated since the inception of the event, including Uma Thurman, Diane Kruger, Rosario Dawson, Jessica Chastain, Shailene Woodley and Clémence Poésy.
Additionally, the exclusive event continues the partnership between IFP and euphoria Calvin Klein to support women in film with the euphoria Calvin Klein Spotlight on Women Filmmakers “Live the Dream” grant. The third annual award for an alumnus of IFP’s Independent Filmmaker Labs was presented during the Gotham Independent Film Awards in December 2013 to Gita Pullapilly, the director of Beneath the Harvest Sky.
