Glamour Reel Moments ‘Happy’ to Help A-List Women in Hollywood Get Behind the CameraRita Wilson, Kirsten Dunst and Kate Hudson Make Directorial Debuts For Glamour’s Short Film Series, Presented by Clinique, That Promotes Women in Film
NEW YORK, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ — GLAMOUR Vice President and Publisher
Bill Wackermann has announced Glamour Reel Moments premieres this fall in a
new and powerful incarnation. The films originate from Glamour readers’
real stories and feature leading Hollywood actresses directing films for
the first time. Glamour has hired Freestyle to develop and produce the
films. The series includes three short films presented by Clinique to be
released in October 2007.
The films were shot in Los Angeles this summer and the talent involved
is among the top of Hollywood’s A-list. Kate Hudson, Kirsten Dunst, and
Rita Wilson, have directed shorts for Glamour Reel Moments, and the films
star Kurt Russell, Dakota Fanning, Virginia Madsen, Chevy Chase, Kristen
Stewart, Winona Ryder, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Aisha Tyler, Camilla Belle,
In a contest that appeared in the January 2007 issue, Glamour readers
were asked to write a short essay of 750 words or less, about an important
event, encounter or moment in their lives when something made them
victorious, empowered and happy. Three winners’ stories have been chosen
and Glamour has partnered with Clinique to script, produce and screen the
three short films. The theme of this year’s project is happiness,
celebrating Clinique’s Happy fragrance, and the films all feature happiness
as a part of the storyline.
“Clinique Happy was scientifically tested to inspire happiness,” says
Executive Director of Global Marketing for Clinique, Catherine Frieder.
“Like the fragrance, Glamour Reel Moments also creates happiness with
stories by, for and about women. These films remind us why we should feel
good and be Happy.”
The films will premiere in Los Angeles on October 9 at the Director’s
Guild Theater. Rita Wilson’s film, “The Trap,” will be available for a
limited time at Clinique counters nationwide October 13 and 14. All three
films can be seen on glamour.com and clinique.com beginning October 15.
This year, Glamour is expanding the project with two new efforts to
further encourage female directors and stories about women in the film
industry. The first is a Reel Moments filmmaking grant which will give one
female recipient in the industry the opportunity to make a directorial
debut along with the high-profile women involved in the project.
Additionally, Glamour is launching a Reel Moments summit which will reunite
alumni of the project and notable women in the industry to discuss topics
for women in film and identify the important stories about women that
should be told on the big screen.
“Glamour Reel Moments is continuing its mission to tell real women’s
stories in Hollywood and promote women in film,” says Wackermann. “By
creating first-time opportunities for women to get behind the camera, not
just in front of it, Glamour Reel Moments is increasing the number of
female directors in Hollywood,” he added.
Glamour Reel Moments has established a genuine community of women in
Hollywood and increased the number of female directors, currently only 7%.
Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Bryce Dallas Howard and Trudie Styler
have all made directorial debuts for Glamour Reel Moments which has
breached the gates of over 25 film festivals including Berlin and Toronto.
Oprah devoted an entire show to discuss the project’s positive impact for
women in film.
