The annual benefit gala supports WIF LA’s educational and philanthropic programs and its advocacy for gender parity for women throughout the industry. The evening, themed “Ignited,” will be held on Wednesday, June 13 at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA.

The evening’s program will also celebrate Women In Film, Los Angeles’ 45th Anniversary and recognize the leaders of the gender parity movement in Hollywood with the “45 years of Advocacy Celebration” segment presented by Oscar-winning actress Frances McDormand. Leaders from the past and present will be acknowledged for their outstanding leadership in the advancement of gender equity.

Cathy Schulman, President of Women In Film, Los Angeles, said, “Throughout its history, Women In Film has focused its efforts on the kind of gender advocacy that is now sweeping through the screen industries like a tidal wave. The theme of this year’s Crystal + Lucy Awards Gala is ‘Ignited,’ referencing the tipping point we’re living in and Women In Film’s responsibility as a thought leader to keep the flame burning for a sustainable future – freed from the constraints of gender bias.”

The 2018 Crystal + Lucy Awards is presented by sponsors Max Mara for the 16th year and Lancôme for the first year. The event is designed and produced by Academy Award-winning producer Cathy Schulman and Tony Schubert of Event Eleven.
