MoMA’s 15th Annual Film Benefit Presented by CHANEL to Honor Guillermo del Toro

December 8, 2022

The Museum of Modern Art

The Museum of Modern Art’s 2022 Film Benefit, presented by CHANEL, will honor Academy Award–winning director Guillermo del Toro on December 8.

Del Toro has been nominated for six Academy Awards, winning the Best Director and Best Picture awards in 2018 for The Shape of Water (2017). Del Toro’s work has appeared in several of the Museum’s exhibitions, starting in 1994, when his first film, Cronos (1993), was selected for the annual New Directors/New Films festival. Since then, the Museum has screened The Shape of Water (2017) as a part of The Contenders 2017 and Nightmare Alley (2021) as a part of The Contenders 2021.

Guillermo del Toro: Crafting Pinocchio, an exhibition devoted to the craft and process behind the celebrated filmmaker’s first feature stop-motion animation film, will open on December 11, 2022. On view through April 15, 2023, the exhibition will provide visitors with a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process needed to realize Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio (2022). In addition to the gallery presentations, MoMA will screen Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio; present a retrospective of del Toro’s films; and host a Carte Blanche film series, curated by the director.


Film at MoMA is made possible by CHANEL.
