Director Aubrey Smyth, represented for commercial and brand assignments via Cutter Productions in New York, was a Grand Prize winner in the 2018 Moët Moment Film Festival. Her dramatic sixty-second short, “The Bout,” was feted at a glittering event in New York held during the recent Tribeca Film Festival. 

“The Bout” is a powerful film that portrays the real-life story of Smyth’s mother as she struggles with a cancer diagnosis and fights back to overcome adversity. Co-written by the director and her mother, Deborah Zawol Smyth, who also served as production designer, the making of “The Bout” served as an affirmation of life and a cause for celebration for Smyth’s family. 

Smyth received a $25,000 grant that will go towards supporting her work as a director for winning the competition. She’s currently in development for her first feature film, “Ginger With A Snap.” 

Moët & Chandon launched the Moët Moment Film Festival in 2015 to commemorate its’ 25th anniversary as the official Champagne of the Golden Globe Awards. The annual short film competition aims to showcase and support the next generation of talented filmmakers.  A full list of MMFF winners can be found on the festival’s web site at http://www.moetfilmfest.com/#.
