In just a few short months, with a debut feature on the horizon and spring spotlights in The Wall Street Journal and Forbes, the women-friendly independent production company Tangerine Entertainment is showing quick growth and expanding recognition in the industry since launching in January at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. 

Helmed by New York-based indie heavy-hitters Amy Hobby and Anne Hubbell, Tangerine expects to have their first film "Lucky Them" on the festival circuit this fall and winter. The film is directed by Megan Griffiths and stars Toni Collette, Thomas Haden Church, Oliver Platt and Amy Seimetz of "Upstream Color." Tangerine has established a new office in Chelsea, and is looking at a big slate of projects to shoot this year and in 2014.

Given the dearth of quality films, indie and otherwise, to serve the starving women's niche, Tangerine is seeking to fill a real need.
