Actors Jurnee Smollett, Taylour Paige, Ariana DeBose and Greta Lee, along with director Patty Jenkins, discuss how they bring their whole, unvarnished selves to their work for the 8th annual Through Her Lens program.

Tribeca and CHANEL come together in support of women in film. Through Her Lens: The Tribeca CHANEL Women’s Filmmaker Program promotes emerging and independent voices. From funding and project support to dedicated mentorship, this multifaceted three-day program champions up-and-coming U.S.-based women and non-binary writers, directors and producers. With guidance from Tribeca, one of the country’s most engaged and respected supporters of women writers and directors, Through Her Lens helps foster these vital voices in their professional and artistic development. Over the course of the program, our mentors assist talent to refine and present their short film concepts to the film industry, and ultimately select one of their projects to fund and produce.
