3:30PM                 Welcome

3:35-4:25PM         In The Director’s Chair interview with Lauren Greenfield, co-founder, INSTITUTE
Described by The New York Times as “America’s foremost visual chronicler of the plutocracy,” Lauren Greenfield is the founder of INSTITUTE and an award-winning filmmaker and photographer known for her groundbreaking work on consumerism, youth culture, and gender. Her documentary films “Thin,” “The Queen of Versailles,” “Generation Wealth” and “The Kingmaker” have been lauded by critics, screened at numerous film festivals around the world, and earned accolades including Best Documentary Director Award at the Sundance Film Festival (“Queen of Versailles”), the Film Independent Spirit of Independence Award (“Generation Wealth”), the Critics’ Choice Award for Most Compelling Living Subject of a Documentary (“The Kingmaker”), and multiple Writers and Directors Guild nominations (“Queen of Versailles,” “Generation Wealth,” “The Kingmaker”).

Greenfield’s iconic photography, which dissolves the traditional boundaries between photojournalism, fashion, documentary, and fine art, has received nearly every award in the industry and been screened, published, and collected by leading cultural institutions. Greenfield has also applied her photographic vision to print advertising and commercials, creating innovative spots and print campaigns for major international brands including Apple, Amex, Asics, Bayer, Chevy, Coca-Cola, Gatorade, Goodyear, Hewlett Packard, Isuzu, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Nike, Pepsi Lifewtr, Tampax, Target, Toyota, US Bank, Wal-Mart, and XBox. Her Super Bowl spot “#LikeAGirl” for Always is widely considered one of the top ads of all time. It swept the industry awards, receiving an Emmy, 14 Cannes Lions (including the Titanium Lion), seven Clios, five ADC Awards, eight D&AD pencils, and Best in Show at the AICP Awards. In 2015, Greenfield made history as the first individual woman director to be nominated for the DGA Award in the commercials category.  In 2019, she and her husband and producing partner Frank Evers founded Girl Culture Films to address the advertising industry’s systemic lack of diversity. Girl Culture Films has recently evolved into INSTITUTE and broadened its directorial roster to be more inclusive of all underrepresented talent regardless of gender. INSTITUTE furthers the mission of uplifting diverse storytellers in advertising.

Greenfield will discuss her filmmaking career, INSTITUTE, the recent commercialmaking debuts--via her company--of Karyn Kusama (“Yellowjackets”) and Pamela Adlon (“Better Things”), and what’s next for her as a director.

4:30-5:30PM         Panel Discussion: Living on the Cutting Edge Of Content 
As lines continue to blur between advertising and entertainment, the opportunity to create cutting-edge content has grown exponentially. This discussion features panelists who live on that ever expanding edge with the emergence of the Metaverse, augmented reality, NFTs, AI, experiential and new ways of creating entertainment--some of which enables brands to connect on different levels with consumers. The next chapter of creation and production has begun as SHOOT seeks insights into--and deeper understanding of--the implications for producers, directors and creative talent.
Panelists:
Jeffrey A. Greenbaum, managing partner, Frankfurt Kurnit
Tatiana Lanier, sr. integrated producer, Ogilvy NY 
Dave Rolfe, global head of production, WPP and Hogarth
Vico Sharabani, founder and ECD, The-Artery ​
