Ms. Shelly was slain Nov. 1 in her West Village office. She appeared in more than 20 films including Hal Hartley's "Trust" and "The Unbelievable Truth." She also wrote, directed and acted in three movies, including "Waitress," which premieres next month at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT. The foundation plans to hold a benefit sometime next year.
