This is what the future of film looks like. @Nikyatu Jusu and Shanea Williams have now received full production grants to produce their vampire drama SUICIDE BY SUNLIGHT through Tribeca, #CHANEL, @TribecaFilmIns, and @PulseFilms's third annual #ThroughHerLens program. “We selected a project that turned a familiar genre on its head in a unique way, filling it with emotion, drama, and mystery," said jurors Mira Nair and Rachel Weisz. We cannot wait for you to see this singular project come to life. Thank you to all of the gifted artists who took part in this three-day initiative and offered their invaluable wisdom and unique worldviews to the next generation of women filmmakers. ✨ 🎥 ✨
