The annual Ivy Film Festival has announced the complete digitization of its 2020 Festival Week featuring a new digital speaker series with some very recognizable names. (Facebook event.)
The live-streamed digital interviews, available via Facebook live, will include student-moderated Q&As with:
• Eliza Hittman, director of Beach Rats, Sundance darling Never Rarely Sometimes Always, and It Felt Like Love, along with directing credits on 13 Reasons Why and High Maintenance.
• Bryan Cranston, Academy Award nominee, Tony, Emmy®, Golden Globe, and SAG winner, best known from the runaway smash hit “Breaking Bad.”
• Valerie Jarrett, senior advisor to U.S. President Barack Obama, who will be speaking on the intersection of politics and media.
• John M. Chu, director of Crazy Rich Asians and the upcoming In The Heights adaptation produced by Lin Manuel Miranda.
As always, Ivy Film Festival remains free and open to the public, but in light of the present circumstances, we invite viewers to make a voluntary contribution to the Rhode Island Free Clinic in support of their community relief work in Brown’s home state. Go here to donate.
Ivy Film Festival, free and open to the public, Friday, April 24, through Thursday, April 30
