The honorees will include HBO Documentary Films president Sheila Nevins, “Beyond the Lights” and “Love & Basketball” director Gina Prince-Bythewood (pictured above) and Mandalay Pictures and Women in Film president Cathy Schulman. The festival, showcasing films that spotlight women’s leadership, will also feature the Athena List, billed as the “gender conscious cousin” of the Black List, which features three to five unproduced screenplays centered on strong female characters.
