This weekend, the LA Times Festival of Books is being succeeded on the USC campus by a not-altogether-different group of panelists. And once again, the best part is that it’s free.
Taking place all day today in the Annenberg East Lobby and Annenberg Auditorium is USC journalism school-sponsored event Hollywood 3.0. The proceedings will culminate at 7 p.m. with a very cool familial chat. From the Daily Trojan write-up:
Two of the prominent headliners are the father-son duo of Henry and Max Winkler. [Graduate student and event team lead Tim] McHugh promises that their panel will not only be inspiring, but also one everyone can gain something from.
“Anyone can have fun with the Winklers,” states McHugh. “Henry Winkler played the popular character Fonzie back on Happy Days and his son Max is a writer, director, producer in his own right in filmmaking. It’s kind of a generational panel… the Winkler event will be in the Annenberg lobby, to create more of a sit-down vibe to it. It’s also about what it’s like working in front and behind the camera and needing to diversify skill sets especially in today’s modern Hollywood.”
Preceding the Winklers will be: “Pitch and Toss: Relationships in Advertising and Public Relations” (1:00 p.m.); “The Best of Both Worlds: Co-Producing Films for US and China” (2:30 p.m.); and “Evolving Revolving: Electronic Dance Music in Los Angeles” (4:30 p.m.).
