Hollywood Invades Tempe: Beasts of The Southern Wild

Film and Media Production students at ASU are offered a unique blend of ethical training and artistic perspectives. During these film events, top filmmakers conduct live video conferences with audiences for a Q&A session following the screening of representative work. Adam Collis, visiting professor of Film Directing and creator of the film series, moderates.

Past guests include the creators of such noted films as Moneyball, The Help, Star Trek, The Hangover, and Thank You for Smoking, as well as the presidents of the Directors Guild of America and the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences.

Events are free and open to the greater ASU community. Hollywood Invades Tempe film events are streamed live on ASU-tv.
