“The Producers Guild of America (PGA) is pleased to announce the first-ever Debra Hill Film Festival on Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27 at the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles. One of the most beloved and influential producers of her time, trailblazer Debra Hill was one of the first women to establish herself as a major feature film producer in the modern era. The Debra Hill Film Festival is a benefit to raise funds for the Debra Hill Fellowship –the single-largest charitable grant given exclusively to emerging producers. The Festival was established by the Producers Guild of America in association with Women In Film, the New Beverly Cinema, and Mondo.
Proceeds from the Film Festival will fund the Debra Hill Fellowship. The Debra Hill Fellowship is awarded annually to a young producer graduating from an accredited graduate film program with a producing-specific curriculum. Recipients of the Fellowship are selected by the PGA’s Debra Hill Fellowship Committee and awarded based on candidates’ professional promise and and personal reflection of Debra Hill’s legacy of humanism and activism.”
