DOROTHY DANDRIDGE, IDA LUPINO AND ANNA MAY WONG
HONORED FOR CULTURAL LEGACY AT
AFI FEST 2016 PRESENTED BY AUDI
Patron Packages That Include Gala Seating Available Now at AFI.com
The American Film Institute (AFI) announced today that, in celebration of the 30th edition of AFI FEST presented by Audi, a trio of diverse female trailblazers will be featured in both the festival's 2016 key art and programming lineup. AFI FEST will spotlight Dorothy Dandridge, the first African American nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award®; Ida Lupino, a pioneering director, writer, producer and actress who became the first woman to direct a film noir; and Anna May Wong, the first Chinese-American actress to rise to international prominence.
See the AFI FEST 2016 key art here.
AFI FEST will screen three films featuring each artist in its expanded Cinema's Legacy section that celebrates motion picture heritage and presents recent restorations of film classics and films about the history of cinema: Otto Preminger's CARMEN JONES (1954) starring Dandridge; the Lupino-directed THE HITCH-HIKER (1953); and E.A. Dupont's PICCADILLY (1929) starring Wong.
"This year, AFI FEST continues its annual commemoration of influential women in film by reviving the contributions of these three screen legends," said Jacqueline Lyanga, AFI FEST Director. "The art work represents AFI's mission to preserve cinema history and honor the artists who — to this day — continue to inspire filmmakers from around the world."
AFI and Women Filmmakers
In addition to the spotlight on female pioneers at AFI FEST, as recently announced, AFI partnered with 20th Century Fox to help increase the number of female directors working on major studio films through an initiative that will provide alumnae of the AFI Conservatory Directing Workshop for Women (DWW) — the American Film Institute's unique female filmmaker training program — the opportunity to direct short films based on the Studio's film franchises. AFI's partnership with Fox builds upon its existing alliance with Lifetime, which, in December 2015, pledged to find job placement for graduates of DWW across A+E Networks. Alumnae of the DWW Class of 2015 have already been employed to shadow directors and to direct content. Meanwhile, nearly half of the AFI Conservatory Fellows in the Directing discipline are women — up more than 60% from three years ago — which is yet another opportunity to increase the number of working female directors in the entertainment community going forward.
As Previously Announced
The Opening Night Gala will be the World Premiere of RULES DON'T APPLY (DIR Warren Beatty) on Thursday, November 10. The 30th edition of AFI FEST takes place November 10–17, 2016, in the heart of Hollywood.

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE
TO BE PRESENTED WITH
"THE RHONDA'S KISS HEALING AND HOPE AWARD"
AT ANNUAL LOS ANGELES CONCERT EVENT
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 3
AT THE EL REY THEATRE
WEEZER TO HEADLINE
--HELPING CANCER PATIENTS IN NEED--
ONLY LIMITED VIP TICKETS REMAIN
Rhonda's Kiss, an organization that helps cancer patients in need, announces today that Academy Award-nominee Johnny Depp will be presented with the first "Healing & Hope Award" at their annual concert event on Thursday, November 3 at The El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles. The "Healing & Hope Award" honors an individual or group of local heroes who have a positive impact on cancer patients, survivors and those in need.
As previously announced, the rock group Weezer are the headlining act for this year's benefit concert, with musician/TV host Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray emcee-ing the evening.
Proceeds from the concert event with Weezer will benefit the Cedars-Sinai Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute and further the mission of Rhonda's Kiss, supporting programs to assist cancer patients in need, and helping those who receive a cancer diagnosis make ends meet during treatment. Rhonda's Kiss is a 501 (c) (3). To date, the charity has donated more than $750,000 to hospitals to support cancer programs and patients.
"Cancer affects many lives and this year it was my family's turn," explains Johnny Depp. "The team at Cedars-Sinai works tirelessly to help people in their darkest moments. Their work is invaluable to all of us, and I will support any opportunity to help shine a light on the cause through Rhonda's Kiss."
"The Cedars-Sinai Department of Radiation Oncology is proud to collaborate with Rhonda's Kiss to raise awareness about the fight against cancer," explains Amin Mirhadi M.D., Cedars-Sinai. "As a long-standing member of the faculty, I've been fortunate to witness the development of a world-class infrastructure for laboratory research, patient clinical trials, and cutting edge technology. With the help of organizations like Rhonda's Kiss, we are able to develop research projects and ideas that we know will make a difference."
"Aside from regular visits with cancer patients all over the country, Johnny has been instrumental in supporting research on lung cancer in our department at Cedars-Sinai," continues Dr. Mirhadi. "The contributions Johnny has continually made in honor of his mother have been instrumental in helping us to develop the kind of research we need to move the needle forward in the fight against lung cancer."
"Johnny lends his name, uses his time, and makes donations to causes that positively impact those in the most need, especially in the field of cancer," adds Kyle Stefanski, executive director of Rhonda's Kiss. "Because we want to acknowledge and support local heroes who are making a difference in the cancer community, our 2016 Rhonda's Kiss Los Angeles 'Healing and Hope Award' will be presented to Johnny Depp at our annual event on November 3. Raising money for cancer is a reminder that every day, people are struggling with the disease and need the support to maintain their dignity and fight. Donating to Cedars-Sinai and their team will help give these patients the support they need."
Rhonda's Kiss is a recognized 501(c)(3). In 2014, Rhondad Stefanski was diagnosed with stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. While she lost her battle, one of the greatest gifts she left was to create Rhonda's Kiss, an event to raise money to help those in the inner city who receive a cancer diagnosis, but may be unable to make ends meet for treatment and support. Through the Rhonda's Kiss Los Angeles event and with proceeds benefitting Cedars-Sinai, Rhonda's Kiss events provide financial support to decrease late-stage cancer diagnosis in urban communities, and primarily for patients in financial need, by using a three-pronged approach, that integrates outreach (education, awareness and screening), navigation (medical and home) and patient services (treatment and financial assistance, and emotional support). Funds are distributed by local hospitals in areas where money is raised. For more information or to donate directly, contact: www.rhondaskiss.org.

WORDS OF WISDOM FROM GEORGE MILLER
It never goes the way it’s planned. When I finished the original Mad Max, I thought I wasn’t cut out to make movies. Then I spoke to other directors who had made their first movies, especially Peter Weir who’d done two, he said, ‘George, it’s always like that! It never goes the way it’s planned. You’ve got to go into a movie as a military exercise, never quite sure where the landmines or the snipers are.’
Don’t be bewildered by the process. By the time we got to the second Mad Max movie, we went with the flow. That’s the difference between the two films – one I was prepared to be bewildered and the other I was shocked by my bewilderment.
Think about the audience while you shoot. I wish I’d read Frank Capra’s The Name Above The Title before I started. He said play something three times faster than you think is normal because on a movie set, there’s so much activity, so much adrenaline that things read faster than they do in the cinema when the audience are in repose. In the performance of scenes, I would have sped them up a little bit.
Learn something from every project. The Witches of Eastwick was a big lesson. It was the worst of Hollywood in that not only were you punished for good behaviour, you were rewarded for bad behaviour. I walked into a production meeting and said I didn’t need a trailer. That was code for ‘this guy’s negotiable on everything’. The big thing I learned from that was to spend just as much time casting your crew and your collaborators and your producers and your writers as you do your cast.
Listen to Jack Nicholson. I’ve learned more from about filmmaking and acting and life from Jack Nicholson than any other person. He was my protector on Eastwick and a great sage. I quit several times, but he said ‘hang in there’. One of the things I learned from him is be grateful for good luck because it doesn’t happen very often.
Always stay curious. When I read Dick King-Smith book The Sheep-Pig [which became Babe], I saw immediately it was a classic hero myth story. I was curious about the story and definitely curious about the technology. It was just a case of waiting to see if the animals could talk. It didn’t lend itself to flamboyant animation, so we waited a long time for the digital age.
Dream big. CGI was the biggest shift in filmmaking since sound. When cinematographer Andrew Lesnie, who shot the Babe movies, went off to shoot Lord of the Rings, he showed me the first motion capture of Gollum. And the moment that happened, I thought 'we can make penguins dance.'

You’ll never master it, but you’ve got to keep trying. By the time I got to Mad Max: Fury Road, it was an amplification of all of these things. I say to myself, ‘you can do this for a thousand years George and you’ll never master it, but you’ve got to keep trying.'
