Los Angeles, Mar 30 (PTI) Time’s Up, the movement formed to combat sexual harassment in Hollywood, will host its inaugural New York event during the Tribeca Film Festival.
The event will feature conversations with activists, filmmakers, storytellers, lawyers, and others, including initial supporters of the movement such as Ashley Judd and Julianne Moore, the festival organisers said in a statement.
Fatima Goss Graves of the National Women’s Law Center, celebrated poet and activist, Robin Morgan and civil rights attorney Monica Ramirez are also going to be part of panel discussions at the event.
The movement was formed January 1, after a massive sexual harassment scandal involving Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein came into light.
It aims to combat sexual harassment and misconduct in the workplace, while boasting of a legal defense fund to help women protect themselves from sexual misconduct.
The festival has also added a new Patti Smith documentary, titled “Horses: Patti Smith and Her Band”, to its lineup.
Directed by Steven Sebring, the film showcases the final performance of Smith’s iconic Horses at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles, as well as the 40th anniversary of the Horses album tour.
It will make its world premiere on April 23 at the Beacon Theatre, and after the screening Smith and her band will perform a short set. PTI 30031149
