Whit Stillman recently attended the John Ford Ireland Film Symposium, and is set to be at the Champs-Elysess Film Festival to have a master class and show three of his four films. Lastly, he is also referenced on a sports website of all places.
Variety article by Andrew Barker on Whit Stillman’s involvement at this years Champs-Elysees Film Festival:
Whit Stillman and Agnes Varda will both be present to field questions at screenings, while a TCM Cinema Essentials sidebar fills out the program with films from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s.
I still get that rush when I see a Tarantino or Whit Stillman movie, I still buy every R.E.M. reissue that comes out and I’m still convinced someday, someone’s gonna figure out The X-Files. It’s my era.
Aisling Newton at IFTN reports on Whit Stillman attending the John Ford Ireland Film Symposium:
Participating directors are Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Whit Stillman (Metropolitan), acclaimed UK director Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Sightseers), IFTA nominated Kieron J. Walsh (When Brendan Met Trudy, Jump) and Vikings director Ken Girotti (who has just started this week on the new season of the acclaimed show). Award-winning Irish Director Neasa Hardiman will chair this Discussion.
Stuart Kemp at the Hollywood Reporter writes about Stillman in Ireland as well:
It’s not all Wayne’s world, with panel discussions with directors and producers including Ben Wheatley and Whit Stillman also programmed.
