‘Suffragette’ Director Sarah Gavron Honored With Juice Award at Hamptons Fest

On Sunday evening, “Suffragette” director Sarah Gavron was presented with the 2015 Hamptons International Film Festival Juice Award, presented by Tangerine Entertainment. The award, which includes a cash prize, is given to a female director each year in support of strong roles for women in film.

The award was presented by Tangerine Entertainment co-founders Anne Hubbell and Amy Hobby following a screening of the film. Tangerine Entertainment’s mission statement notes it is “a film production company focusing on commercially viable, critically acclaimed stories for all audiences, with an emphasis on female filmmakers and strong roles for women.”

Said Gavron, “With Tangerine Entertainment backing so many women filmmakers – both established and up-and-coming – I am delighted and honored that they chose me for their Juice Fund Award this year. As a filmmaking community, we must all continue to generate significant roles for women both in front of and behind the camera.”

Set in the early 20th century, “Suffragette” stars Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter and Meryl Streep as British women who fought for the right to vote. Written by Abi Morgan, who Gavron previously worked with on the 2007 film “Brick Lane,” the movie is already garnering Oscar buzz for Mulligan’s turn as a working class wife and mother brought into the suffragette movement. The film opens Oct. 23 in limited release in the United States.
