Lee Grant is a survivor of The Hollywood Blacklist whose films became some of the most influential of the New Hollywood era. Over the course of her 70+ year career she has been nominated for for three Academy Awards winning a fourth for her role in the Hal Ashby/Warren Beatty classic Shampoo. Turning her attention to directing she helmed the Academy Award winning Down and Out in America, she is the first woman to win the Directors Guild award.

A multi-generational group of writers, filmmakers, artists, and stars came out to celebrate Grant's massive body of work. Brenda Vaccaro, Tyne Daly, Diane Baker, and Bill Pullman were just a few of the familiar faces spotted in the crowd that night. LEE GRANT: ACTOR. FILMMAKER runs until February 12, 2020 at Manhattan's Film Forum and will launch the Hope Runs High re-release of Grant's non-fiction work, expanding digitally and to repertory cinemas in 2020.

Grant has a small role in the upcoming music film Killian & the Comeback Kids.
