“The BronzeLens Women SuperStars Luncheon has become a favorite festival for inspiring and informing women from all walks of life. It serves as a platform for interactive networking and engagement”, said Kathleen Bertrand, Executive Producer of the BronzeLens Film Festival.
The 2016 honorees include veteran actress Margaret Avery, filmmaker Julie Dash, President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) Cheryl Boone Isaacs, producer Nina Yang Bongiovi (“Dope,” “Fruitvale Station”) and script supervisor Dawn Gilliam (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Star Trek Into the Darkness,” “The Hunger Games”).
