The Adrienne Shelly Foundation announced their five new grant recipients for 2012. The five grants are awarded in conjunction with other organizations/ institutions including: Columbia University, Boston University, Tribeca All Access, Women in Film Finishing Fund and the American Film Institute.  The grants are given to women filmmakers to support their careers and artistic vision as well as furthering the legacy that actor, writer and director Adrienne Shelly left behind.

Each year we set out to find talented, committed women filmmakers who possess a similar passion, spirit and vision for which Adrienne was known. This year's recipients perfectly embody the values and vision of ASF and we couldn't be more proud to shine a spotlight on the exceptional work that they've done.
