SHEILA NEVINS TALK AND BOOK SIGNING OF HER NEW BOOK
“YOU DON’T LOOK YOUR AGE….And Other Fairy Tales” – FREE!
Sheila Nevins is one of the most influential people in documentary filmmaking today and on CBS Morning with Lesley Stahl, was called the “queen of documentary film.” Sheila is President of HBO Documentary Films, producing over one thousand films for HBO. Her films have been recognized by over 65 Primetime Emmy Awards, 46 Peabody Awards and 26 Academy Awards. And now she has stepped out from behind the camera and written a book. Sheila Nevins is the best friend you never knew you had. Join us for a talk filled with hilarity, wisdom and inspiration as she covers the real life challenges of being a woman in a man’s world, an older woman in a youth-obsessed society and what being a feminist really means. BIFF Board Member, Mary Mott, will moderate the conversation.
A book signing with Ms. Nevins will take place immediately following her talk.
Copies of Ms. Nevins book will be available to purchase at the talk,
