The Directors Series

One of the best ways to become a skilled filmmaker is to study and enjoy the greatest directors in cinema history. The UG Academy of Cinematic Arts’ “Director Series” takes a fun and informative look at both classic and contemporary film directors who have created and shaped the motion picture industry. Film educator, cinema historian, and theatre series curator Joe Horine introduces major directors’ representative works and then leads a discussion following screenings of the films … all in a social environment that includes dinner, dessert, and drinks.
