About this Event

A panel of industry insiders will discuss the high profile and profitable relationship between comic books and the screen. Comic book and graphic novel adaptations have been a staple in film and television for 75 years, both artistically and financially successful. Acclaimed filmmakers such Patty Jenkins and Christopher Nolan have adapted comic books for film. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is the most successful film franchise in history; The Walking Dead is one of the most popular TV series; and Black Panther influenced national discourse and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.

Panelists include comic book writer Steven Grant (2 Guns, The Punisher), film and television producer Matt Skiena (The LEGO Movie), producer Erik Olsen (The Dirt, The Book of Eli) and film and television producer and comic book creator Shane Riches (The Fog).

Co-presented by the Hanson FilmTV Institute and the UA School of Theatre, Film & Television, this event is made possible with support from Film Tucson, a division of Visit Tucson.

This table read is a part of the TENWEST Impact Festival. For more information about the festival, visit tenwest.com.
