Teach-In on Sustainability Keynote: Hollywood and Sustainability – How Stories Shape Us and Our Future

March 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

Filmmaker Lydia Dean Pilcher tackles the intersection of climate change and the entertainment industry in her collaborations with Hollywood studios, unions, and guilds. Her focus is clean energy innovation, and she co-leads an industry-wide movement promoting the need for diversity in content and voices in climate storytelling on screen.

She has taught a graduate film seminar at New York University about the shifting landscape of audience and storytelling: Producing with a Vision: Radical Transformation and Disruption in the Entertainment Industry. Currently, she’s teaching a graduate-level course she designed for Columbia University’s Climate School and School of the Arts: Climatic Change: Storytelling Arts, Zeitgeist, and our Future.

With remarks from School of Communication Dean Brent Smith, President Jay Bernhardt, and Marketing Communication Chair Nejem Raheem.
