On September 3rd 2023, on the occasion of Venice Film Festival’s “Giornate degli Autori”, Miu Miu premiered the latest commission of Miu Miu Women’s Tales series, Stane, directed by the Cannes Camera d’Or prize winning, Croatian filmmaker Antoneta Alamat Kusijanović, as well as hosting an intimate dinner at Ca’ Corner della Regina.
During this event, Miu Miu also revealed the new Miu Miu Women’s Tales Committee: a group of distinguished film-world thought leaders who will steward the influential short-film series into its next defining era. In attendance were the Committee’s members, including award-winning filmmaker and director of Women’s Tales #5, Ava Duvernay; renowned actress, writer and director Maggie Gyllenhaal; and two-times Academy Award winning costume-, production- and set-designer Catherine Martin, alongside cofounding Committee members Miuccia Prada and Verde Visconti.
The Committee will shape the intellectual, cultural and industry direction of Women’s Tales. Now in its second decade of visionary activity, Miu Miu Women’s Tales remains one of the only consistent commissioning platforms exclusively for female filmmakers. The Committee’s mandate includes outreach to new fans, creators and viewers; evolving the Women’s Tales mission to synchronise with developments in the film world; generate renewed visibility for the Women’s Tales universe; and critically reframe the Women’s Tales narrative moving forwards.
