In this FREE lecture we’ll cover the rise of independent cinema, European influence on American film, shifting narrative and stylistic norms, and how advancing technologies would forever change the possibilities of storytelling in the modern era.

This series of lectures are designed to educate the public on topics related to the history, aesthetics, and business of film. Participants can choose to attend specific sessions, or attend all courses for a more comprehensive “film school” experience.

YoFiFest Producer and workshop presenter Kevyn Fairchild has over sixteen years of experience working with film festivals, including the Telluride Film Festival, Denver Film Festival, and the Plaza Classic Film Festival in El Paso, TX. He has a Bachelor’s in Film Studies from the University of Colorado Denver, and a Master’s in Media Studies from the New School. He is also a published photographer who has been part of exhibitions in Denver and New York.

All persons 14+ are welcome.
