RoC Honors Hines at Hamptons Film Festival

Emmy-nominated actress Cheryl Hines was awarded the “Gold Standard Award for Female Feature Director” by RoC Skincare at the 17th Annual Hamptons International Film Festival in East Hampton, NY.

Ms. Hines was honored for her directorial debut, “Serious Moonlight,” which is a tribute to the film’s screenwriter, the late filmmaker Adrienne Shelley, best known for her work on “Waitress,” who died before her screenplay debuted.

“I am honored by this recognition from RoC Skincare and Hamptons International Film Festival and hope my success opens a window of opportunity for other women to accomplish their dreams and to continue to express themselves through film,” said Ms. Hines, who also stars in “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

“We are delighted to partner with the Hamptons International Film Festival to award Cheryl Hines with the Gold Standard Award for Feature Female Director,” said Leslie Dreibelbis, group product director of RoC Skincare. “Cheryl’s talent and ambition is inspiring to women everywhere.”

Steve Goddard, founder and president of Pravana, knows first hand the effects of this disease, after having his mother-in-law diagnosed. This experience led him to reach out to members of the professional beauty industry and summon help in the fight against breast cancer.

“I urge you to do something wonderful with your beauty skills to support the cause. It only takes a wave of your color brush to make a difference and resonate the generous giving and loving nature of our business,” Mr. Goddard said. “Working as beauty professionals, it is likely that someone special in our lives has been diagnosed with breast cancer…Because women are the very heart and soul of our business, it is vital that we lend support to further research for a cure.”
