Kentucky Film Educators Summit

While serving as a member of the Kentucky Film Commission, I was tasked by the state’s First Lady to organize and chair the first-ever Kentucky Film Educator’s Summit, the purpose of which would be to bring together Kentucky’s prominent film educators to discuss the successes and shortcomings of the state’s current film education opportunities, and to map a path for growth in the coming years. Chair of USC’s screenwriting program, Jack Epps Jr. (Top Gun), served as the keynote, and I was please by a turnout of fifteen professors representing all of the state’s major institutions.  Held at the IdeaFestival in Louisville last September, the summit produced an engaging and spirited discussion before a public and tape-recorded audience, and yielded new awareness of, and opportunities for Kentucky’s film educators.
