❤️👍🎥❤️👍🎥⁣ #youngwomeninfilm ⁣ Repost: @hoytamania⁣ I was lucky to be asked to act for / with a group of wonderful young woman on a short film that they wrote and are producing for the AFI Conservatory’s Young Women in Film program, sponsored by the Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation. I’ve only just learned about it but it turns out that AFI hosts 45 high school girls for an eight-week filmmaking workshop, where students receive mentorship from current fellows and working professional alumni of the AFI Conservatory. I found out that the girls involved are from different schools and programs from all over Los Angeles and I also learned so much from just watching them and collaborating with them today and I was mainly so happy to see them filled with the same passion and excitement that my friends and I were back when we first began our filmmaking journeys. There should be more programs like this all around the World, more art, more unity, more fellowship, more collaboration. I’m glad to be a part of it in my own small way. Oh and for those of you wondering, they had me play a wildly drunken man who breaks into his mothers house and talks to her blender about getting more drunk, in the middle of the night because, #typecasting ;) Well done #willandjadasmithfamilyfoundation ! Thank you so much for your continued friendship and support @vichoffmanla🙌🏻❤️💯

@booksmart director Olivia Wilde and writer/producer Katie Silberman made us all a little more filmsmart during their visit to campus.

John Singleton was a true American master. He was a groundbreaking filmmaker with a unique voice who empowered many other filmmakers to tell their own exceptional stories. 💔 #RipJohnSingleton #gonetoosoon

What an enormous loss to all of us who love stories well-told. Steve Golin was a unique talent – and he had the ability to encourage and inspire talented people all around him. He was an alumnus of the AFI Conservatory, Class of 1981. And Steve never stopped giving back. He was an active member of our Advisory Council of the Conservatory and the only producer to receive the AFI Franklin J. Schaffner Alumni Medal. Such an inspiration. His daughter, Anna, also graduated from the Conservatory just last year, and she shared her Dad’s rare combination of talent and heart. Steve may be gone – but has left an indelible mark on the history of the American Film Institute. #RIPSteveGolin

POSE, co-created by AFI alum Brad Falchuk, stepped off the ballroom floor yesterday with a #PeabodyAward! 👏 👏👏⁣ ⁣ “The competition and its delicious melodrama serves as backdrop for the burgeoning LGBTQ community and family, doing important representational work and storytelling both on and off the ballroom floor.”

So proud of our alums whose projects were nominated for #PeabodyAwards in the Entertainment category. @poseonfx, co-created by Brad Falchuk, and @homecomingtv, directed by Sam Esmail are some of the most compelling and empowering stories on television. #keeptellingstories #AFIalumsrock #bestoftelevision

Before director @destindaniel launches into the #MARVEL Cinematic Universe with SHANG-CHI, he stopped by AFI to screen his indie gem, SHORT TERM 12. That’s a real superhero for you.

Very sad to learn of the passing of the incredibly talented Katherine Helmond, who was a graduate of the #AFIDWW program in 1982. Helmond would go on to direct episodes of BENSON and the hit show she starred in for eight seasons, WHO’S THE BOSS. #ripkatherinehelmond

Female directors are making strides this pilot season and AFI is proud to be part of this moment. A great way to celebrate #FemaleFilmmakerFriday! #AFIDWW alum Jude Weng DWW is the 1st Asian-American woman ever and the 1st woman of color in nearly 30 years to direct a half-hour broadcast network pilot. Hourlong pilots directed by women was up from 34% in 2018 to 37% in 2019. Female drama pilot directors include Uta Briesewitz (AFI Class of 1994), Susannah Grant (AFI Class of 1991) and Maggie Kiley (AFI DWW Class of 2009).
