Women in Entertainment 2010 - Power 100 List
A Harvard and Georgetown Law graduate, Prewitt has been heading the independent sector’s trade organization for close to a decade. True, it’s an awfully long way from her beginnings as a Wall Street lawyer, but with her background, it makes sense: Prewitt is heading the indie equivalent of the MPAA, dealing with legal and tax matters as well as overseeing the annual American Film Market, one of the world’s most important movie-sales gatherings. Her responsibilities may seem dull compared to shooting a movie, but actions like her successful effort this year to get a financial export initiative grant from Congress to open a U.S. pavilion at Hong Kong Filmart are pivotal for independent filmmakers. “It’s a breakthrough in getting the indie perspective out there,” she says.
