Chloe Sevigny is leading the charge of female filmmakers who will debut new short films with the sponsorship of women’s news site Refinery29. The project, called ShatterBox Anthology, will feature four documentaries, four comedies, two animated films, and two dramas that will focus on women and girls and run on the company’s website each month for a year. The project is also backed by Sundance Institute, which produces the famed film festival, with the aim of helping to provide support for “emerging female filmmakers.”
Sevigny’s contribution is the short film Kitty, based on a short story by the same name by writer Paul Bowles, about a girl who finds herself transformed into a kitten. Producers Christine Vachon and Pamela Koffler, who produced Still Alice, will work as advisors who help to identify young talent.
