Film and filmaking
By: Regina Deveary
On October 4th, 2013, the University Club hosted the Film and Filmmaking in Kentucky Symposium for students and scholars interested in producing films in Kentucky. Many Kentucky locals and students came out to listen to directors, production teams, and film scholars speak about the arts and filmmaking in Kentucky and Louisville’s flourishing industry.
The day began with a continental breakfast for attendees during a welcome speech by June Beshear, First Lady of the State of Kentucky, and John Ferre, the Interim Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Louisville. The day later consisted of a fully catered lunch during a live panel with Kimberly Levin, director of the locally-produced drama “Cantuckee”, and directors Zachary Treitz, Josephine Decker, and film producer Milan Chakraborty. The evening ended with presentations and live panels about “Teaching and Writing About Film,” “The Business of Film,” and “Documentary Film in Kentucky.” The symposium proved to be a success as students and scholars left enlightened with helpful resources to get their film careers started in Kentucky.
Sasha Perez, a student at the University of Louisville, said, “It was a great experience to come out and learn of the film industry in Louisville. I’m so glad I was given the opportunity to attend the symposium and hopefully become a part of the blossoming film industry in Kentucky.”
