As the application timeline opens for its second year, the University of Georgia’s Master of Fine Arts in Film, Television and Digital Media announces a new addition: the start of the Distinguished Industry Mentor program:
The Distinguished Industry Mentors initiative will draw on top talent from more than 45 professional writers, producers and directors to work with the students by providing master classes, hosted conversations, special screenings of their work and networking opportunities. Mentors signed on to help include recent Emmy winner Damon Lindelof, co-creator/showrunner of “Watchmen,” “The Leftovers” and “Lost”; Amy Aniobi, executive producer of “Insecure” and “Two Dope Queens”; and Justin Hillian, showrunner of “The Chi“, among others.
A joint UGA degree program between the Franklin College and the Grady College, the Film MFA is creating new, expansive opportunities for students and industry professionals to hone their skills, collaborate and create.
And on Nov. 11, the MFA program presents Director of Screenwriting Neil Landau in conversation with Andy Siara, screenwriter of “Palm Springs” on Hulu
