Oliver Stone talks films at event
Tickets to be part of an audience with three-time Academy Award-winner Oliver Stone are now on sale.
The celebrated writer, producer and director will discuss his illustrious career with University experts at an event in Edinburgh’s Filmhouse on Wednesday, 9 March.
In Conversation with Oliver Stone
Oliver Stone has written and directed more than 20 full-length feature films, among them Platoon (1986), Born on the Fourth of July (1989), JFK (1991), Nixon (1995), W (2008) and the documentary and Untold History of the United States (2012).
During his stay, the filmmaker will take part in a number of workshops with students at Edinburgh College of Art and the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures.
In collaboration with the Filmhouse, we are pleased to be able to introduce a true Hollywood Great to Scotland and the city of Edinburgh.
At the evening event, Edinburgh academics Dr Jonny Murray and Dr David Sorfa will join Oliver Stone on stage to gain insight on his artistic and political motivations and thoughts on how the film industry has changed throughout his thirty-year career.
He will talk about his current project, the highly anticipated political thriller, Snowden, ahead of its nation-wide release later this year.
The film is directed by Oliver Stone and co-written with Kieran Fitzgerald.
The event has been organised by the University in partnership with Edinburgh Filmhouse.
We are delighted to be able to host Oliver Stone’s visit to the University of Edinburgh. His ground-breaking work resonates across all of our world-leading film-based programmes in Edinburgh College of Art and the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, and speaks to broader student and staff interests in politics, biography, documentary and the power of the media.
