The Museum of Modern Art’s Tenth Annual Film Benefit
Presented by CHANEL
Honoring Julianne Moore
The Museum of Modern Art’s 2017 Film Benefit, presented by CHANEL, will honor Academy Award–winning actress Julianne Moore on November 13. Winner of the 2015 Best Actress Oscar for Still Alice (2014), Ms. Moore has also been nominated for the Best Actress Academy Award on two other occasions, for her roles in The End of the Affair (2000) and Far from Heaven (2003), and the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award on two other occasions, for her roles in Boogie Nights (1998) and The Hours (2003). Later this year, Ms. Moore will star in the highly anticipated films Wonderstruck (2017), Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017), and Suburbicon (2017). The Film Benefit will be highlighted by a gala dinner and a tribute recognizing Ms. Moore’s acclaimed work. MoMA will also pay tribute to Ms. Moore with a film series of her work, November 2–12 in the Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters.
Rajendra Roy, The Celeste Bartos Chief Curator of Film at MoMA, states, “Julianne Moore is a fearless champion of risk-taking cinema. There appears to be no challenge she isn't willing to tackle when it comes to upending expectations of what a ‘leading lady’ can or should do. She continues to inspire legions of actors around the world, and it is our honor to celebrate her phenomenal contributions to the art of film.”
Previous Film Benefit honorees include Tom Hanks, Cate Blanchett, Alfonso Cuarón, Tilda Swinton, Quentin Tarantino, Pedro Almodóvar, Kathryn Bigelow, Tim Burton, and Baz Luhrmann. Tables are available for $75,000, $50,000, and $25,000 by calling (212) 708- 9680. Press Contact: Meg Montgoris, The Museum of Modern Art, meg_montgoris@mo
