Master class lecture series

Master Class Lecture Series is a weekly program where guest speakers, internationally renowned film, television and media professionals, all celebrated in their specific fields, give a two–hour lecture on the subject of their expertise.

Directors, producers, actors, editors, authors, musicians, costume designers, directors of photography or sound designers come to share their work, their stories and their experience. Films and film clips are shown to illustrate their work.
