At the Tribeca Film Festival® in New York, IWC Schaffhausen showcased its support for emerging artists at the fifth annual “For the Love of Cinema” gala dinner. IWC presented this year’s IWC Filmmaker Award along with the prize money of USD 50,000 to Chloé Zhao and, for the first time, also awarded two additional nominees, Anahita Ghazvinizadeh and Abu Bakr Shawky, with grants of USD 5,000 each.
The Swiss watch manufacturer founded its IWC Filmmaker Award several years ago in order to support both up-andcoming and already established filmmakers. IWC presents the award as part of its commitment to the film festivals in Beijing, Dubai, Zurich, Singapore, and London, and now for the fifth time in its role as Official ‘Festival-Time’ Partner of the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.
Comedian Samantha Bee was the host of the gala dinner, which was attended by numerous celebrities, including actors Robert De Niro, Uma Thurman, and Taylor Schilling as well as IWC brand ambassadors Rosamund Pike, Adriana Lima, and Karolina Kurkova. An exclusive performance by Tony and Grammy Award Winner Cynthia Erivo closed the evening’s event.
