Alfonso Cuarón to make appearances at two events in February
February will be a great month for Alfonso Cuarón fans! The Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban director will be taking part in two events next week, one day after the other.
The first, reports The Hollywood Reporter, is Loyola Marymount’s School of Film and Television series The Masters, which will feature 90-minute conversations with distinguished filmmakers “on the scope of their career, using clips and archival footage of their work.”
The series will be moderated by The Hollywood Reporter executive features editor Stephen Galloway and will also include David O. Russell. Cuarón’s interview will be the series’ first and takes place on February 12, but it is unfortunately only open to students.
Broadway World writes that the second event, “An Evening with Alfonso Cuarón,” will be hosted by The Film Society of Lincoln Center and will involve a screening of ten-time Oscar-nominated film Gravity, followed by a discussion with Cuaron and then a screening of Children of Men, Cuarón’s celebrated 2006 film.
The Film Society’s Director of Programming, Dennis Lim, states,
“In this landmark year for Alfonso, we’re proud to welcome him to the Film Society for a closer look at his film Gravity, both an artistic and a technical breakthrough. We’ll also take this opportunity to re-visit his gripping Children of Men on the big screen and engage in an in-depth conversation about his rich and varied body of work.”
The event will be moderated by Film Comment magazine editor-in-chief, Gavin Smith, and will take place February 13 at the Walter Reade Theatre. Tickets are now available for both single screening tickets and a double feature package.
