Egyptian Theatre, Park City, Utah
Ticket Required

Kicking off Art of Film Weekend, a program celebrating the craft of filmmaking, join Robert Redford and George Lucas – two iconic filmmakers who epitomize the spirit of independence in American cinema – in conversation with critic Leonard Maltin.

Distinctive as storytellers, their pioneering visions have also yielded innovative enterprises and institutions that cultivate creativity and imagination, advance technology, and push the realm of possibility.

Robert Redford is recognized the world over for the roles he has played and the projects he has directed or produced throughout a distinguished stage and film career. He is an environmentalist and advocate for social responsibility and political involvement and has nurtured countless innovative voices through his nonprofit Sundance Institute and Film Festival.

Filmmaker George Lucas’ devotion to timeless storytelling and cutting-edge innovation has resulted in some of the most successful and beloved films of all time, including the Star Wars saga and the Indiana Jones franchise, while also pioneering new digital standards for sophistication in film visuals and sound and inspiring generations of young people to follow their imagination and dreams.

Leonard Maltin is best known for his annual Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide and 30-year run on Entertainment Tonight. He has served as President of the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, votes on the National Film Registry, sits on the Board of Directors of the National Film Preservation Foundation, teaches at the USC School of Cinematic Arts, and is a prolific author. He holds court online at LeonardMaltin.com and on the weekly podcast Maltin on Movies.
