Charter Lecture


February 26, 2018

2:00 PM – UGA Chapel

The discussion, titled “Hollywood South: The New $9.5 Billion Georgia Industry,” is free and open to the public, and audience members are encouraged to ask questions to the panelists through the Twitter hashtag #HollywoodSouth.

Panelists include Gale Anne Hurd, executive producer of “The Walking Dead”; Will Packer, executive producer of “Straight Outta Compton”; and Lee Thomas, deputy commissioner of the Georgia Film, Music and Digital Entertainment Office of the Georgia Department of Economic Development. The panel will be moderated by the executive director of the Georgia Film Academy, Jeffrey Stepakoff.

The Charter Lecture Series, established in 1988, was named to honor the high ideals expressed in the 1785 charter, which founded the University of Georgia as the nation’s first state-chartered university. Charter Lectures reach the whole University community with ideas of importance to a free society.
