SFTV HwdMasters Jan Apr2016 Slider R1 - The Hollywood Masters Returns for Fifth Season

Loyola Marymount University School of Film and Television is pleased to announce the return of The Hollywood Masters, starting January 29 with writer-director-producer George Miller (The Road Warrior, Happy Feet, Mad Max: Fury Road).

Additional guests include acclaimed screenwriter Aaron Sorkin (Steve Jobs, The Social Network, The West Wing); actor-activist Geena Davis (Thelma & Louise, The Accidental Tourist); actor-songwriter-producer Ice Cube (Ride Along, Straight Outta Compton); Oscar-winning producer Irwin Winkler (Rocky, Raging Bull, Creed); and groundbreaking TV producer Norman Lear (All in the Family, The Jeffersons).

“This season’s line-up of talent is incredible. We are thrilled that our students will hear from such prominent industry figures — many of them are trailblazers who have spent their careers promoting diversity and social justice, values that are hallmarks of our school,” said Stephen Ujlaki, dean of the School of Film and Television.

“This season’s guests represent everything that is best about film and television,” said Stephen Galloway, executive features editor of The Hollywood Reporter, and the Emmy Award-winning host of the series. “Norman Lear has created some of the most cutting-edge work in television and has continued to be a beacon for anyone who believes entertainment can have a social impact; and Ice Cube is proving that film and music are still at the heart of social change.”

The Hollywood Masters is open to the LMU community with priority given to SFTV students and faculty. Watch your lion email for exclusive invitations.
