Description

Johns Hopkins University is no stranger to the silver screen. From campus cameos in John Waters films to fictional alumni on just about every TV medical drama, Hopkins has made its mark on the shows and movies we love to watch. But it's more than just a pretty campus: graduates from the Hopkins Program in Film and Media Studies and the Writing Seminars have been taking Hollywood by storm for decades.

Professor Bill Leslie, who is writing a history of Hopkins, will host an exploration of Hopkins and film that includes plenty of vintage clips and a trivia quiz with prizes. Independent filmmaker and Film and Media Studies faculty member Matt Porterfield will give attendees a look at film at Johns Hopkins today. There will be a reception.
