2018 Luncheon Recap

Let’s relive the 2018 WICT Touchstones Luncheon, when we gathered to celebrate the achievements of some of the industry’s most outstanding women.

After welcome remarks by WICT President & CEO, Maria Brennan, the luncheon opened with a conversation with Zoe Kazan and Carey Mulligan, fresh off their recent film project, Wildlife, written and produced by Kazan with Mulligan as the lead actress. Lisa Schwartz, member of the WICT Global Board of Directors and Co-President of IFC Films & Sundance Selects, facilitated the engaging and intimate Touchstones Talk with the two Hollywood stars.
