Real Places 2019: Opening Keynote and Reception
January 16, 2019 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
About the Event:
Join UT Austin Professor Charles Ramirez Berg as he takes guests on a journey through the exciting history of filmmaking in the Lone Star State. Some people around the world believe Texas is all cowboys and oil fields from watching popular Hollywood movies and TV shows, but the state’s diverse stories and iconic locations have inspired filmmakers to promote a wide variety of creative storytelling. Ramirez Berg will share his personal experience with the 1956 film “Giant” and its impact on Texas pop culture.
During this evening of entertainment, cocktails, and hearty refreshments, meet with members of the Texas Film Commission and Texas Archive of the Moving Image, who will provide guests with resources from their organizations.
