Award-winning writer and director Alice Rohrwacher grew up in Italy. She graduated with a degree in Classic Literature from Torino University, and wrote for theater and worked as a musician before approaching filmmaking, initially as a documentary editor. Her first feature, CORPO CELESTE, premiered in Cannes Film Festival’s Directors’ Fortnight in 2011, and was then selected for Sundance, New York, London, Rio, and Tokyo film festivals before being released in the U.S., UK, and France. Rohrwacher’s second feature, THE WONDERS, won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival along with the Best Film Prize at Filmfest München, and the Black Pearl Award at the 2014 Abu Dhabi Film Festival. In 2015 she directed 'The Djess,' a short film commissioned by Prada as part of Miu Miu’s Women’s Tales film series that premiered during New York Fashion Week, and was also presented at Venice Film Festival. Most recently Alice wrote and directed HAPPY AS LAZZARO which was nominated for a Golden Palm and won the Best Screenplay award, as well as winning Best Feature at the Jerusalem and Chicago film festivals.

Alma Har'el Unveils Free The Work! "Director Alma Har’el disrupted the ad world with Free the Bid, a searchable platform of women directors. Now she’s going to diversify entertainment. “There’s this feeling that hiring women directors or people of color is something that [you] have to do as part of woke culture,” Har’el says. “We really want to move the discussion away from ticking the box of diversity and inclusion, to making people understand that they’re missing out on the best talent out there.” 
Free The Work is an online database for emerging directors, writers, cinematographers, and other creatives.

"For Free the Work, Har’el says she wanted to open the aperture to include not just women and people of color, but also LGBTQ creators, disabled creators—basically anyone outside the intersection of white, straight, cisgendered, able-bodied men. But the mission is still the same: to make it impossible for the powers that be to overlook diverse talent with the excuse that all the best options are already working. The talent pool is deeper than the few exceptions who’ve already managed to break through—and Har’el is making it her mission to surface as many as possible." Read more on Free The Bid here!
