Emerson plans a Women in Motion Film & Media Summit

HBO vice president of talent development Kelly Edwards, “Daredevil” and “Girls” art director Toni Barton, and “Dope” composer Germaine Franco are on the list of big entertainment names to speak during Emerson College’s first Women in Motion Film & Media Summit on Nov. 9, the school announced Wednesday. Visual and media arts professor Cristina Kotz Cornejo organized the event, which will give the film community the chance to meet, discuss their projects, and talk about ways to solve gender-related problems in the business. The event — which is free and open to the public — includes a 7 p.m. screening of “Songs My Brother Taught Me,” presented by producer Mollye Asher and directed by Chloé Zhao, who’ll check in through Skype.
