Film Keynote: Barry Jenkins
How do you go from premiering your very first film at SXSW to winning the Academy Award for Best Picture? If anyone knows, it’s Barry Jenkins. He started his career with a debut film called Medicine for Melancholy that premiered at SXSW in 2008. Nine years later, he made history with Oscar-winning Moonlight. That’s one hell of a rise, in one short period of time. If only we could get some insight into the mind of Jenkins. Oh wait, we can! Don’t miss his Film Keynote, which is sure to inspire and enlighten fellow filmmakers and fans alike.
