Co-presented by the Art Directors Guild Film Society

Monthly at the Egyptian and Aero Theatres

Think of the seemingly innocuous cornfield in Hitchcock’s masterpiece NORTH BY NORTHWEST … the lone silhouette of the Victorian mansion in DAYS OF HEAVEN, recalling the paintings of Andrew Wyeth … the dilapidated Bradbury Building streaked with shafts of light in BLADE RUNNER. All are results of the art director’s creative contributions to the filmmaking process. These are the visual artists and storytellers, who, in consultation primarily with the director, develop the look of a feature film or television production, adapt their style to all types of films. Their design creates the overall look, atmosphere and emotion that moves story material from the printed page to the screen in a complete and seamless manner.

Join us at the American Cinematheque for the 2011 installment of our Art Directors Film Society monthly series. Kicking off the series is a screening of RENAISSANCE, starring a sleekly animated Daniel Craig.

Series compiled by Tom Walsh, John Muto and Gwen Deglise. Program note additions by Beth Hanna.
