Hollywood: Who Holds the Power?

The Black List’s Franklin Leonard in Conversation with Zeitguide’s Brad Grossman
Franklin Leonard and Brad Grossman

Join film executive Franklin Leonard, founder of the Black List, for a conversation about Hollywood, politics, and the future of the film industry with Zeitguide’s Brad Grossman.

Since 2005, the Black List has aimed to shine a light on promising filmmakers and screenwriters with extraordinary scripts—turning unconventional screenplays into hits, including Oscar-winning films like The King’s Speech, Argo, and Juno; Zeitguide advises businesses and industry leaders on the rapidly shifting crosscurrents of contemporary culture. Hear Leonard and Grossman discuss Hollywood’s reckoning with diversity, how the profit-driven model of filmmaking is changing, and how these cultural shifts will help shape the future of movies.
