Our Speaker Series continues with Award-Winning director, producer and Bronx native, Rashaad Ernesto Green. While Rashaad is currently wrapping up filming on BET's hit show Being Mary Jane and its new show, the Quad, he has a long list of credits making it likely you've seen some of his work. A graduate of Dartmouth College and NYU Tisch Graduate Film School, recipient of the Princess Grace Foundation Award and Spike Lee Fellowship, New York native Rashaad Ernesto Green's first feature, Gun Hill Road, premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and received nationwide theatrical distribution. Named in Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film and indieWIRE's Ten New Voices in Cinema. Rashaad’s films have screened on Netflix, HBO, BET and festivals internationally. He’s been supported by HBO, NBC, Time Warner, Sundance Feature Film Institute, Tribeca Film Institute and IFP. Most recently, Rashaad has directed episodes of NBC’s Grimm, Warner Bros/CW’s Supernatural and Vampire Diaries, and BET’s Being Mary Jane and The Quad. Our discussion will center around the art and business of directing in Hollywood, East Coast vs West Coast and the art of social justice, among other topics. Bring your questions, and be ready for a great conversation this December. Don't miss October's Speaker Series featuring our friends at Seed&Spark. Past speaker series have included Reggie Bythewood, Michael Starbury, Sheldon Candis, Fred Johnson, Devanshi Patel and Shawn Peters. Looking forward to continuing this series in the new year!
