Glenn Close will be honored by the Museum of the Moving Image at its 32nd annual Salute Dec. 3 in New York. Nominated for six Academy Awards, 12 Golden Globes, 12 Emmys, and four Tonys, Close joins the ranks of past honorees, including Annette Bening, Goldie Hawn, Julianne Moore, among others. The European Women’s Audiovisual Network and other women in film advocacy groups demand that Venice Film Festival join the Cannes and Locarno festivals in signing a gender-parity pledge. For the second year in a row, the Italian festival has included just one female directed film — Jennifer Kent’s “The Nightingale — among the 21 titles in competition. Award-winning director Martha Stephens recently wrapped principal photography on her upcoming femme-centric To the Stars. The indie film is set in 1960’s Oklahoma and centers on the powerful friendship forged between a shy farmer’s daughter and the reckless new girl in town. Read details on THE WEEK IN WOMEN.
