“We are thrilled to once again join Women in Film in celebrating all of the outstanding female Emmy nominees,” said Variety publisher Michelle Sobrino-Stearns. “We continue to support their various programs throughout the year and are honored to continue our partnership on this highly-anticipated annual event.”
This year’s theme will feature a mid-century modern aesthetic, with Yoplait as the presenting sponsor. Fashion partner Max Mara will dress some attendees while sponsor Gallo Family Vineyards will feature their family of varietals and an on-site opportunity for event guests to create their own “Family Crests.” Guests will also be treated to a sampling of one-of-a-kind desserts featuring Brownie Brittle.
“We are delighted to once again co-host our annual Emmy event with Variety,” said Danica Krislovich, Women in Film Television & Media chair. “Variety has been so consistently supportive of Women In Film, helping us shine a spotlight on WIF TV & Media initiatives that have proven enormously productive in our community, like the series pitch and shadowing programs that allow aspiring producers and directors exclusive opportunities to learn their craft firsthand by observing professionals at work.”
