Jaeger-LeCoultre and the Film Society of Lincoln Center celebrated their 2016 Filmmaker in Residence, Award-winning writer and director Alice Rohrwacher during their fourth annual dinner in New York.
The film community, actors, producers, writers and supporters of the program joined the two institutions to honor this unique initiative designed to support filmmakers in the early stage of the creative process using New York City and the New York Film Festival as its backdrop for inspiration.
As part of her residency, Alice took part in a panel discussion that explored her work, inspiration, and creativity.
“I can’t imagine a better gift than to spend time in New York, take part in the events at the New York Film Festival, and to have the time to research in local archives and libraries for my next film,” said Alice Rohrwacher.
During her residency in New York, Alice Rohrwacher continues to write her third feature film, My Bitter Land, about the adventures of a man living on the margins of his society who can seemingly travel through time.
Earlier that day, Jaeger-LeCoultre and Finch & Partners bring together their photographic exhibition The Art of Behind The Scenes to the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
The Art of Behind The Scenes exhibition, which debuted during the Cannes Film Festival 2015 and 2016, reveals black-and-white photographs taken by some of the world’s most accomplished “on-set” photographers providing an opportunity to celebrate the art of photography and to travel back to the golden era of filmmaking with iconic directors and actors.
