Bridget Arsenault

Founder and CEO

Founded by Bridget Arsenault, Long-Winded Lady Productions (LWLP) is a London-based company specialising in producing luxury film screenings and creative events. Having experience working on a broad-range of projects, LWLP can organise everything from glamorous red-carpet film premieres, to the small-scale film screenings, to events for global brands and in-house corporate events. Most recently, Long-Winded Lady Productions programmed and produced the HeforShe UN Women Film Series, which took place at The Conduit in Mayfair and Curzon Cinemas across London in March 2017. That event series included A-list talent like Gemma Arterton, Christiane Amanpour and Hayley Atwell and partnered with top-tier brands, such as Disney and Jimmy Choo. Bridget was also the co-founder Bright Young Things Film Club, which from 2013-2016 ran an annual film series in London supporting up-and-coming filmmakers. A long-time journalist, Bridget worked at Vanity Fair for eight years, during which she was the Associate Editor, Print & Digital, and she remains the London Correspondent for Vanityfair.com. Bridget is also a Lifestyle Editor at Forbes.com, and she currently writes freelance for a variety of international publications, including British Vogue, Travel + Leisure, Departures, House & Garden, and Refinery29.

I find that a decision to do something leaves me free, while a decision not to do something only leaves me surrounded with undone things and endless, exasperating chances of changing my mind.
