Anna Martemucci’s One Cambodian Family Please For My Pleasure has received $75,000 at the inaugural Through Her Lens: The Tribeca Chanel Women’s Filmmaker Program.
Julianne Moore and Patricia Clarkson were among the jurors attending the closing reception on Wednesday.
Martemucci’s pitch centres on a young mother living in hardship who helps a refugee family. The filmmaker will also receive production support from Pulse Films and Tribeca Digital Studios to make her short film.
Tribeca Enterprises and Chanel partnered on the initiative.
