Guest Artists and Scholars @ FTVM

The Department of the Department of Film, Television, and Media integrates critical studies and creative production in film, television, and new media. We invite leading screenwriters, filmmakers, directors, animators, experimental and media artists, and renowned academic scholars from around the world to share their experiences and insights with our FTVM majors through lectures, workshops, and discussions.

Our guest artists and scholars give our majors an extraordinary opportunity to hear about the intricacies of the industry and academia from a variety of perspectives. 

Oscar-Winning Visiting Artists

When Kemp Powers was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI in 2021, he became the latest visiting artist to be nominated for either Best Original or Best Adapted Screenplay.  Four of those screenplays would result in Best Picture Awards as well. In total, 21 visiting writers and writer-directors have been nominated for one or more Screenwriting Academy Awards and 11 would win the Oscar.
