Pierce Brosnan will be at Pepperdine on Wednesday to help educate and motivate Los Angeles high school students to pursue careers in film and television.
Pepperdine has partnered with the Cinemagic International Film & Television Festival, a Belfast-based film charity. The organization uses film to teach, encourage and inspire young people through annual youth-produced film festivals, screenings, workshops and other events. It is the largest youth film event in Ireland and the UK.There will be nearly 100 students from three Los Angeles schools attending the event. Special guest Pierce Brosnan and his wife will address the students in the afternoon about their experiences in the filmmaking industry.
Pepperine and CIFTF will be hosting a program of educational and entertaining film screenings, workshops and Q&A sessions. Among the clips shown will be a short film produced at CIFTF's first international film camp held in Belfast last year, entitled "Gone." The film was made by young people from Belfast, Donegal, Dublin, New York, and Los Angeles.
