Advance registration is REQUIRED--there will be NO tickets available at the door.  This event is cosponsored by the Dramatists Guild, with half the seats reserved for the Guild and half for Harvardwood.  Harvardwood's share of the tickets is now SOLD OUT.  If you're a Dramatists Guild member, try registering through the Guild.  If we get any e-mails from people who have registered saying they're not going to be there, we'll make additional tickets available.

In March of 2010, Geoffrey Fletcher won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for PRECIOUS.   The film was greeted as both an artistic, and a popular, success.  Barbara Bush hailed the movie, saying "If I were to give out a homework assignment, it would be this:  go see the movie!"  A.O. Scott praised Fletcher's "risky, remarkable film adaptation . . . It howls and stammers, but it also sings."

Fletcher has just made his debut as a film director with Violet & Daisy, for which he also wrote the screenplay.  He is currently working on a film about the 1971 Attica prison rebellion.


Renowned independent film producer Ted Hope will speak with Fletcher.  Hope's many notable films include The Wedding Banquet (Ang Lee), Eat Drink Man Woman (Ang Lee), The Brothers McMullen, Happiness (Todd Solondz), In the Bedroom, The Ice Storm, The Laramie Project (Moises Kaufman), American Splendor, 21 Grams, and The Savages.  Hope is also a superb writer and speaker about film.  Ted Hope will be hosting a master class on producing Indie film along with Christine Vachon on November 5.  Register at http://killerhope-pr.eventbrite.com/


Special thanks to Andy Goodwin and the Plymouth Hill Foundation.
