The Art of Filmmaking • A Conversation with John Hancock
Art House • Friday, 4 p.m.
This talkback with Oscar-nominated, and award-winning Indiana writer and director John Hancock is an intimate discussion about the art of filmmaking, moderated by David Kendall.
Hancock’s feature film credits include Bang The Drum Slowly (Paramount), California Dreaming (AIP), Let’s Scare Jessica to Death (Paramount), and the Christmas classic Prancer (Orion), starring Sam Elliott, Cloris Leachman, Abe Vigoda, and Rebecca Harrell, which he shot on his family’s fruit farm in LaPorte County, Indiana.
The Looking Glass (Film Acres) was screened at the Goshen Theater in 2015 and Hancock’s wife and partner, actress and writer, Dorothy Tristan was recognized for her moving performance, and won the RBFF Best Actress award that year.
In the summer of 2018, he was back on set filming his latest feature, The Girls of Summer (Film Acres), which is in post-production and slated to be completed this summer.
